Belle of the Fall “Scarborough Fair” – Listen

Belle of the Fall have had a good year, with their album ‘Rise‘ having been nominated for the 2018 New England Music Awards Album of The Year.  Their version  of ‘Scarborough Fair‘ (not from ‘Rise‘ by the by) is quite clearly influenced by the Simon and Garfunkel take on the song –  but that doesn’t stop it having a distinctiveness of its own.  The interplay of Tracy Walton and Julia Ford’s vocals is just perfect, and it’s an ideal sonic addition for those who are already enjoying the likes of Darlingside and The Milk Carton Kids.  People like us.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
