Thea Gilmore has released her brand new album Small World Turning, following on from 2017’s The Counterweight, her third successive top 40 album.
An artist of enduring international acclaim and a justly revered lyricist, Gilmore’s musical settings have taken many ingenious detours in recent years. Small World Turning is an album with an unashamed folk flavor and features contributions from Cara Dillon, Seth and Sam Lakeman, Katriona Gilmore, Jamie Roberts and BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award winner Ciaran Algar. Acoustic guitars are back to the fore, and a quintessentially rootsy array of instruments frame them - fiddles, whistles, mandolins, tenor banjos are all in abundance.
A gifted and exceptional artist at the peak of her powers, Thea Gilmore has delivered a vibrant and deeply resonant album, rooted in folk music but completely transcending any genre related limitations.
