Till April Is Dead - A Garland of May 2017 EarToTheGroundMusic
Lisa’s 3rd full length album ‘Till April Is Dead-A Garland of May’ is a bold conceptual collection of English Folk songs of ritual, fertility and celebration of the month of May.
Produced by Gerry Diver (multi-instrumentalist/composer).
The album also features Graham Coxon (Blur), David Tibet (Current 93), Mary Hampton, Pete Flood (Bellowhead) and the voice of leading folk historian Steve Roud amongst its guests.
"As spring flashes in, this album heralds the season with astonishing power...Knapp's voice throughout is a revelation, both pure and wild, springing free. Cuckoos, whirring clocks and buzzing flies add extra layers to this fascinating sound world on an album overflowing with warmth, light and waywardness.
