Description

Cath & Phil Tyler - Dumb Supper

Cath & Phil have been stars of the North East underground scene for the last 3 years, sharing stages with Six Organs Of Admittance, Papa M, Charalambides and many more.
Cath and Phil originally met some years ago when Phil was helping arrange a UK tour for Cordelia’s Dad. They fell in love and married, Cath relocating to Newcastle, and they now make beautiful music together. Literally!
Cath & Phil’s music beautifully blends the hard edged traditions of primitive Americana and English folk, using guitar, banjo, fiddle and more, all topped with their searing vocals and sublime harmonies. Their songs speak of grit, blood and guts, tenderness, love and death.

Cath & Phil believe in folk retaining its original storytelling function, passing on tales through the centuries. In their words: “These songs came to us by way of Lena Bourne Fish, Hattie Hicks Presnell, Homer Cornett, Eleazar Tillett & Martha Etheridge (Anne & Frank Warner Collection); the Sacred Harp….We changed some of the words and wrote some of the tunes.” All the songs on the album are adaptations of songs they’ve unearthed or have been passed onto them through family members, musical collaborators and their own love of the original information highway, folk music.

Cath & Phil Tyler’s take on folk is a very welcome antidote to much of the current tide of fey/faux folk and acoustic whimsy, reinstating grit, virtuosity, authenticity and mesmeric, powerful performance to this timeless genre.

Reviews

"Folk moves into a new era with Cath and Phil. Their combination of earthiness and grit, raw yet hearfelt  and beautiful singing and immaculate playing makes this one of the most exciting and most moving albums I've heard in a long while."
-- Fiona Talkington, BBC Radio 3’s ‘Late Junction’

“The twining harmonies…recall the heyday of English pastoral folk song”
-- The Wire

“There's an earthiness & grittiness & a reality about this that I find personally incredibly appealing, the simplicity of the music is absolutely stunning”
--Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2

“Dumb Supper is one of those rare modern folk albums that will find a home in both the longstanding ‘traditional’ music community and among those attracted to the forms more experimental and lo-fi possibilities….It’s a weird looking-glass effect many folk fans will be familiar with: the straighter you play it, the stranger it gets…Shirley Collins always understood this and so do Cath & Phil Tyler”
--Plan B
