Angeline Morrison - The Sorrow Songs Green LP

Angeline Morrison’s critically acclaimed album The Sorrow Songs: Folk Songs of Black British Experience is repressed on 8th March on green opaque vinyl

‘The Sorrow Songs: Folk Songs of Black British Experience,’ released on Topic Records in October 2022, lifted Cornwall-based folk singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Angeline Morrison, out of relative obscurity and into the limelight. Immediately recognised as an important work in the British folk canon, Morrison’s courageous album rightfully enjoyed unanimous acclaim.

‘The Sorrows Songs’ shines a light into a previously, virtually neglected corner of Black British History. Whereas, the USA has long since documented its Black history in song, until now, the UK had no real equivalent. ‘The Sorrow Songs’ begins to address this. Angeline refers to the album as “re-storying” and as a gift not only to the forgotten Black ancestors of these islands but to the folk community here today.

Produced by Eliza Carthy and featuring some of her beautiful, soaring string arrangements, The Sorrow Songs also features a guest appearance by her father and bona fide folk legend, Martin Carthy on ‘Slave No More.’

Angeline Morrison tours this Spring with songs from her ‘ground-breaking’ landmark album, ‘The Sorrow Songs: Folk Songs of Black British Experience’, plus songs from her new release. On this 14-date tour of venues in England & Wales, Angeline will be joined by a host of friends and musicians from across the folk & roots community, including Daudi Matsiko, Johnny Campbell and Lizzie Hardingham. Angeline rounds off the tour with a concert streamed live from her Cornish home.
