Peter and Barbara Snape have a great love of traditional British folk music and have used their skills and knowledge to search out material from their native Lancashire/North West.
In doing so, they have produced an invigorating collection of songs which reflect the social and economic history of their geographical area.
Performed in their own inimitable and distinctive style, Barbara is a singer with a wide emotional range, Peter is a melodeon player who provides subtle accompaniment to the songs and steps out in tunes. Together they haul you into the song and have a knack of communicating emotional depth and enjoyable highs, leaving you with plenty to mull over.
The Snapes have once again adopted a typically intelligent and considered approach and Upward Onward is a truly fine CD - definitely one for the collection.
