Fay Hield has edited and arranged a collection of 14 traditional songs that explore how we use the arts, and storytelling through song more specifically, to understand what it means to be human.

The album is released on 12 February and already receiving rave reviews including four stars in Mojo Magazine which describes Fay as "One of folk music's most pre-eminent modern voices".

Fay appeared on BBC Radio 3’s Folk Connections weekend (30th Jan) and will be on the Folk Show (BBC Radio 2) playing live on 10th February.
