about

A new pressing of this album including extra track and expanded booklet. Buy limited edition coloured vinyl 12" LP (edition of 500 numbered copies, reverse board matt cover, with fully illustrated booklet and download code) from Clay Pipe Music.

First released on Clay Pipe Music in 2015, Friends and Enemies; Lovers and Strangers is a collection of songs inspired by the Welsh folk tales of the Mabinogi,

The stories collected in The Four Branches of The Mabinogi were written in the 11th Century but contain themes that remain relevant today: love and hatred; battles for power; loss, displacement and migration of peoples; magic and wonder.

The album is full of beautiful crystal clear melodies that enhance the intrigue of the tales Sharron is telling. Using harp, recorders and bowed dulcimer, as well as guitar and piano the songs manage to capture the atmosphere of the time and take the listener back to the magical places mentioned in the stories.
