In this era of modern pop-cross folk music, it’s good to know some artists are not afraid to stick with tradition. And with his haunting version of old folk track ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’, UK artist Philip Murray Warson has done just that.
Keeping it light in terms of instrumentation with the exception of a beautiful horn interlude, the track swims in acoustic guitar and vocal harmonies, making for a lovely listen. And the good news is you can download the track for free too.
The release is hopefully just the first in what should be a banner year for Warson, who is already gaining momentum thanks to excellent live shows and BBC support. There’s more to come too so watch this space.
