Suite for Psaltery and Dulcimer

A 3 track new folk album (41m 25s) — released March 25th 2016 on Kit Records

Michael Tanner (aka Plinth) lulls the listener into a half-imagined worlds, drawing equally from vague memories of childhood (eerie books borrowed from the library, quaint otherworldly television serials, hours spent exploring old attics and junkshops), and a heartfelt love and appreciation of the English countryside and the ancient villages dotted around it. His songs have been likened to 'little spells', and hearing them fade out for the last time is to be gently roused from a dream and, perhaps sadly, returned to the present time.

The limited LP 'Suite for Psaltery and Dulcimer' draws inspiration from 70s new-age cassettes and the Sussex landscape. Playing only bowed dulcimer and psaltery, Michael is joined by Alison Cotton on viola. Limited to 300 copies, with hand stamped labels.

It still soothes the spirit, offering the soft glow of a winter hearth. - A Closer Listen blog
