Richard Dawson - full band set (UK)

Richard Dawson embodies an archaic, free interpretation of folk. His songs surprise the ear with their accidental harmonies and highly complex structures. With instrumentation featuring violins, harp and choir, the music is direct and immediate, though it possesses something more akin to the attitude of an electrified metal band in spite of the acoustic means it employs. The polyphonic singing has an unsettling, invocative and cultish aura, lending the group’s sound a special power and allowing it to exert a magical effect.
