Album Review: Bard - The Springtime Fool (Woodburner Records)
Fresh and interesting folk sounds from London-born singer-songwriter Theo Bard and the band named after him. With eleven distinctively sounding self-penned songs, incorporating Ewan Bleach's prominent clarinet and Louisa Jones' accordion flurries that effectively give Bard their unique sound, THE SPRINGTIME FOOL blends together a seamless fusion of traditional, Celtic and gypsy jazz influences, peppered with a contemporary sensibility.
With the rhythm section comprising Nick Owen on drums and Jay Darwish on bass, Bard present something refreshingly new and different to tease and nourish our folk music palate, from the jazz inflected Late Afternoon, the curious Peace of Mind to the lyrical grandeur of the title song The Springtime Fool.
