‘I listen to a lot of music. Most of it is OK. Some is good. A little is great. And very few albums are wonderful. The Frappin’ And Ramblin’ Pete Morton is wonderful.’  Phil Widdows, Presenter/Producer www.folkcast.co.uk       CD  and download from  www.fellside.com

Untitled-1

‘THE FRAPPIN’ AND RAMBLIN’ PETE MORTON’ is a new collection of songs, ballads and folk raps that could only have come from the pen of Pete Morton. Wandering through the centuries and back with both eyes on the present, he delivers ten spellbinding lyrical gems on this superb new album. ‘Frapping’ his way around the tradition with a mix of rap, talkin’ blues and folk club chorus he rants social comment at knitting machine speed, before returning to his tried and tested skill at the beautiful ballad. There are anthems here too… this really is a folk singing ‘tour de force’… this CD has all the hallmarks of a classic.    www.fellside.com
