Invisible Music: folk songs that influenced Angela Carter

My new album ‘Invisible Music: folk songs that influenced Angela Carter’ is out in April. The CD copies have just arrived in the office – OLI generously indulged my artwork desires, so the CD is actually really a little book, full of my musings, folk song words, pictures by Christine Molan, and extracts from Carter’s prose.
