1/2/3/4 — #196 — Wayside Balladry

‘The Wayside Ballads Vol 3’ is the final instalment of a vision Ross Jackson and Bill Jackson had in 2014 to produce three records of our songs across two continents and back. For Volume 3, all hell broke loose globally via a pandemic. They were confined to their homes but decided to press on anyway, working remote to each other in a spree of sharing files, email, and telephone conversations over a period of four months. What emerges is a gorgeous modern folk record. We also feature excellent tracks from Coda Chroma, Fog Lake, Francine Odysseys and much more.
