Farrell Family (father Eddie, son Frankie, daughter Catie) are based in East Cornwall and Plymouth, and sing and play material from the English, Scottish, Irish and more recently the Cornish radical traditions.
Their first CD “The William Morris Songbook” (2014) is their tribute to the life and work of the great nineteenth century designer and political radical William Morris, and is a collection of radical songs, some traditional, some modern, all of which deal with social and green issues, from the fourteenth to the twenty-first centuries.
They also write their own topical material dealing with contemporary red/green topics such as the spread of solar farms and wind turbines, and the crisis in the NHS.
Expect also a few Phil Ochs numbers!
