Reliably informed

This is a gentle, tender affair from Catch The Sparrow. Although there’s no official definition, the mark of good folk music has always been linked to communicating the most while doing the least, never overstating or embellishing, yet weaving a tapestry where every thread fits perfectly. Farewell – Here’s The Tender Coming captures that with ease, encapsulating the heart of the genre in a way that’s imbued with heart.

Although the track may take a moment to find its groove, as the opening minute provides an almost a capella, naked atmosphere, it’s when the instrumental begins to swell that the track truly shines.  As a gorgeous, lilting vocal dances gracefully over the strings, this stellar interpretation does the song every piece of justice.
