Born in Sheffield before moving around various parts of Derbyshire, Shropshire and Scotland and then settling in Moss Valley (an abandoned and forgotten area on the edgelands of South Yorkshire and North East Derbyshire), it makes perfect sense that 26 year old Jim Ghedi’s music feels both fluidly transient yet also deeply rooted to a sense of place.

On his second album, A Hymn For Ancient Land, his elemental style of playing has expanded into a fuller band set-up, complete with glorious orchestration and dazzling composition that makes it a truly innovative contemporary record whilst still being rooted in great tradition.

Through the inclusion of double bass, violin, cello, harp, trumpet, piano, accordion and numerous other instruments, Ghedi has elevated his unique blend of folk music to a level far beyond that of that of his earlier work. Perhaps most remarkable still is how seamless their inclusions feel, rather than wrestling for space, the wealth of instruments float in and out of one another, interlocking absorbing guitars, gently whirring strings and drums that beat like the faint sounds of thunder on the horizon.

LP jacket is gloss laminate with front & back folds on the outside. The back panel is uncoated/matt varnish - 300 gsm card and 180g vinyl. Inner sleeve 'field notes' from Jim (CD is in 8 page booklet).
