Produced by Perfect Houseplants

Perfect Houseplants is renowned for its cross-over projects with the award winning Orlando Consort, violin genius Andrew Manze and, on their recording of radical re-workings of English folk music, virtuoso recorder player Pamela Thorby.

The Millennium saw Perfect Houseplants performing in Europe and many International festivals as well as recording their fifth album entitled 'New Folk Songs'.  This is considered by many to be their most accomplished recording so far and started as a commission to write new music based on folk music from East Anglia. The album features the virtuoso recorder playing of Pamela Thorby on four radical re-workings of traditional songs.

Recording information:

Mark Lockheart - tenor and soprano saxophones
Huw Warren - piano, keyboards and accordion
Dudley Philips - electric and acoustic bass
Martin France - drums and electric percussion
Pamela Thorby - recorders on tracks 4, 7, 9 & 10
