Notes and Editorial Reviews

A British-American ensemble formed in Oxford (UK), roots revival band Floyds Row explores early, folk, and classical idioms on an array of modern and period instruments. Fusing a variety of styles, Floyds Row repertoire includes both original material and pieces pulled from the early British folk tradition and English Renaissance. This release, featuring original works and arrangements by band members Andrew Arceci and Chris Ferebee, beautifully combines classical, world, jazz, and rock traditions to create the stunning result. "A mix of Purcell and Bob Dylan played on various instruments, including an accordion and a viola da gamba. Kinda crazy, but it works."
