The question is, can she live up to all that hype? Although she's not the finished article yet, Looking Glass is an impressive beginning. She's picked a few fairly well-known pieces for the album, like "The Banks of the Nile" and "Sheepcrook and Black Dog," but there is plenty of the unfamiliar here.

Fay Hield is a wonderful young singer of traditional British song. In 2001 she helped form The Witches Of Elswick - a female acapella quartet. With her partner Jon Boden, Fay is a leading light in the movement to promote a new awareness of singing folk songs. Her debut solo CD, Looking Glass, is built around a striking repertoire of often obscure material drawn from rarely-thumbed collections. This spicy stew of songs and ballads, catches and caprices was recorded with accompaniment from Rob Habron (English Acoustic Collective), Sam Sweeney & Jon Boden (Bellowhead)
