A Sunday Song

A Sunday Song' is a new project based around a small group of singers who meet up in Bath, in a pub, around a table most Sundays in any given month who, after meeting each other at every tune session and folk concert happening in the fair city, we decided to get together of an evening in order to sing the songs we love.

Over the last two years, the session has been a steady occurrence and date in our weekly diary, we have had nights when the room is filled and nights when the room has been empty, nights with drunken sing-alongs and nights with slow ballads reigning supreme and, best of all, nights when people enjoying a quiet pint come over and join in (sometimes in different tongues… our Swedish isn’t any better for it though!).

As we rapidly approached the end of the year, I had the idea of recording our songs somewhere that they would be accessible to everyone in order to provide us with a record of what we’ve been doing these last couple of years but also to allow others outside Bath to know that something’s going on. Recording a folk song and releasing it over a set period of time is not a new idea in this city, in England or even in the world but included in this blog will be the different interpretations, tunes and lyrics, a few mixes of songs that we have found and maybe some original numbers along the way as well!

Hope you enjoy it over the year.

“overflow(ing) with power, poise and presence… I’ve not heard a better ‘live’ acoustic album in a long time” about the E.P ‘Tim Graham and Rachel Hall’ Folkwords

"Tim Graham understands the meaning of space and is not afraid to use it, which he does to glorious effect on Too Good To Burn. The song seems as built as much on anticipation and atmosphere as it does on vocal delivery and music and the overall effect is fantastic." - The Green Man
