Another fine recording from this unique powerhouse band. “Going and Staying” features the band’s Deep English sound. Unique instrumentation and their approach to folk music give Brass Monkey an instantly recognisable sound and presence. For many of the tracks, the lineup expands to a six-piece featuring an extended brass section.

“If there is a British folk supergroup these days, it’s surely this unusual band”The Guardian
“…a vitality about the whole thing … lending majesty and a refreshingly different landscape on which to place these … songs”fRoots
“The arrangements and playing are inventive and alive – played in a unique style which is eminently listenable”Get Rhythm
