Product Notes

Following a decade of song-writing, performing, touring & recording together, acoustic duo Mundy-Turner are celebrating the release of their latest album, HA'PENNY TWEEDLE - and it looks set to be their best yet. Thirteen tracks deliver an hour of masterful vocal & instrumental performances from Cath Mundy & Jay Turner. The pair's trademark soaring vocal harmonies are a powerful force, while Cath's fine fiddle & Jay's individual open-tuned guitar have never before been so beautifully recorded. The ebullient title track breathes life into the family story of Jay's Great-Grandfather, a late-19th century English colliery worker who turned travelling showman with his homebuilt fairground ride, the Ha'Penny Tweedle. The pair also cleverly re-interpret a range of bush ballads from Cath's native Australia, bringing new depth to classic works by Banjo Paterson & Henry Lawson. A stark acappella arrangement of the traditional anti-war song c.1815, 'Mrs McGrath', aptly contrats & links with Jay's superb new song 'Stealing My Democracy', whilst the deply moving 'We Can Fly to Heaven' showcases Cath's emotive voice at it most silken & pure. There's a definite old-timey lilt to the album. Yet the collection still manages to pack a contemporary punch with songs like Unfinished Business and bonus track Naked (which treats one of the duo's most popular live tracks to a sensitive band arrangement). Presenting a delectable combination of original & traditional songs, glorious instrumentals, stunning acappella & Australian bush ballads, HA'PENNY TWEEDLE finds Mundy-Turner at the height of their song-writing & performing powers.
