Continuing the sisters' resolute self-documentation, in this case a suite of live performances recorded with the Brighouse and Rastrick Brass Band.

Yes, that lot. And, as you'd expect, the music picks a dainty course between the arty and the folk-twee, and sometimes achieves a kind of stately lift-off into graver realms. The programme comprises pianist Adrian McNally's "Father's Suite" plus a swatch of Trad/Arr stuff, most of it soft on the ear and heart.
