Vulcan's Hammer - 1995 - The Two Magicians (UK studio sessions & live 1973-1975)
21:58


Little is known about the British traditional folk quartet Vulcan's Hammer, other than that they were based in Kent and put out one album, True Hearts and Sound Bottoms, as a privately pressed release limited to 250 copies. Though it's pretty typical of the English traditional vocal folk group genre without bearing special hallmarks of distinction, it's accomplished within its style, with strong solid male-female vocal harmonies. The material is likewise traditional in nature, mixing a cappella passages with arrangements based around acoustic guitar and fiddle. [allmusic guide]
