Angeline Morrison is a vocalist, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and morris dancer based in Cornwall, who believes in the inherent beauty of sad songs. Angeline’s homespun sonic aesthetic, deeply emotive writing and layered vocal harmonies are all stitched together to make small, tender, often dark stories in song.
This Black History Month sees the release of Angeline's new album "The Sorrow Songs: Folk Songs of Black British Experience". The UK's historic Black presence is evidenced but not well known, and difficult to find in the UK's existing body of folk songs. This album is the result of research into the historic Black population of these islands. It is a work of re-storying, of lives and of experiences, into songs in the folk style.
The Sorrow Songs band are: Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne (anglo concertina, vocals), Hamilton Gross (violin, vocals), Clarke Camilleri (banjo, guitar, vocals), and Angeline Morrison (vocals, autoharp).
Elspeth Anne is a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist weaving trad folk, alt country and punk influences into a unique dark folk sound.

She has been writing and recording as an artist since 2005 and is set to release her third solo album, Mercy Me, in Autumn 2022.
