Bird in the Belly

Bird in the Belly


Bird in the Belly is collective is made up of solo artist Jinnwoo, folk duo Hickory Signals, visual artist Epha Roe, and instrumentalist Tom Pryor. Together they have spent time recording old songs and stories that have either never before been recorded or are rarely recorded – all set to contemporary folk music, in the hopes of reintroducing these songs back into the folk canon. The resulting album ‘The Crowing’ was released earlier this year, and has garnered considerable praise. As a band Bird in the Belly is reigniting these past British voices and creating raw and visceral songs with a 60’s folk revival feel around them. A sound that straddles present day folk but with a charming and distinctive echo of more ancient times. Alongside this, the group has been working on a feature length documentary to support the album, interviewing the likes of June Tabor, Frankie Armstrong, Stick in the Wheel, Fellside Record, Rootbeat Records, Ian Anderson (fRoots Editor), Lisa Knapp, Gerry Diver, Naomi Bedford and The Rails about the contemporary folk scene.
