'Aye' is the most wonderful collection of songs from the late Martyn Bennett - he really had the knack of creating something utterly new out of traditional folk & field recordings. Anyone attempting to release a more inspiring album this year will have his/her work cut out!
A true pioneer putting the cool into celtic music... Just think where he'd be taking the genre now if he'd not been cut down just as he found his stride! Have any artists stepped up to carry forward the baton? Can't think of anyone who even comes close to his talent these days... shame!
I just heard the track Liberation for the first time, and it is amazing! I can not explain how gutted i was to find out after a bit of googling that he had died of cancer! i am totally gutted!! RIP Martyn
