This is excellent, especially her take on Shipbuilding.

There's not much that can be said about June Tabor that hasn't been well said already. Suffice it to say that this is one more remarkable CD from a remarkable singer. Stark and sparse, mostly, as is her favoured style, her voice is what you really want to hear, and it just gets better and better.

A superb addition to her outstanding catalogue. This is not easy listening but no one gets such a wealth of meaning out a song. The arrangements are quite sparse but the sympathetic accompaniment brilliantly supports June's voice.

A stunning collection of songs

June Tabor vocals with Andy Cutting diatonic accordion, Huw Warren piano, Mark Emerson violin, viola, Tim Harries double bass - June’s range and depth are unparalleled, and with Ashore she fully justifies her reputation as England’s foremost song interpreter. Ashore features a powerful set of contemporary songs alongside classic traditional ballads like ‘The Bleacher Lassie Of Kelvinhaugh’ and ‘The Great Selkie Of Sule Skerry’. The contemporary material includes a spine-tingling version of Elvis Costello’s ‘Shipbuilding’; a new recording of Ian Telfer’s ‘Finisterre’ (first recorded by June with the Oyster Band on ‘Freedom & Rain’) and two remarkable songs from the pen of Cyril Tawney – ‘The Grey Funnel Line’ and ‘The Oggie Man’.
