A page of wonderful folk music, originally started to fill the 3 months of summer break.

Find a little more out about me, Matthew Ball.


Grand Hallway are such a good group, I’m actually disappointed it took me so long to find out about them. This entire album is great, from the first song all the way through to the last. To single out any one song to the detriment of the others should be a crime.

I would describe them as orchestral folk, with their songs being made up of great swathes of instruments playing simultaneously. Each one builds up till the crescendo towards the end. Please listen to the album in its entirety, give yourself 46 minutes to load the site (or spotify) and just listen.

I will be doing another post on this group shortly on their other and latest album. This band literally produces greatness.
