Reviews

‘…never has he made a more important or more deeply considered and researched album’
Iain Anderson, BBC Radio Scotland 

‘Reg Meuros has written a masterpiece and the musicians working with him on this are simply amazing. He couldn’t have made a better choice.’
Mike Harding 

‘A stunning and important work of historical research set to some of the best folk tunes you’ll hear this year’
Tim Martin – Americana UK 

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘An album which both moves and challenges the listener and a reminder that with the current government and media attacks on Black Lives Matter we are still having to fight the ideology which gave rise to the trade depicted in these songs.’
Steve Johnson – Morning Star
