A Twist in the Story (2008)

This new album features Anne Lister’s songs based on some lesser-known Welsh folk tales, as well as some true stories, some songs inspired by the work she did running storytelling workshops for prisoners, and two songs hitherto only available on her very first album “Burnt Feathers”. You’ll meet Polly Williams from Trevethin, who danced with the fairies, a fisherman whose singing voice won the heart of a mermaid, a young man who had a whole host of white animals and King Herla, still riding the Herefordshire marches and waiting to get off his horse as well as Irving Pollard from Coventry, a ghost from a women’s prison and Merlin.
