Ben Edge

New Tradition


A brilliantly weird record of modern folk music.

New Tradition is the debut Solo Album by Ben Edge, who's past musical projects include Thee Spivs and Ben Edge and the Electric Pencils.

+ Limited to 500 copies on Dark Green vinyl.

Ben who is also a painter and visual artist, has undertaken a project over the past four years in which he has obsessively been visiting, filming and painting the folk customs, rituals and ceremonies of the British Isles and this group of songs was inspired by the sights, sounds and folkloric world in which Edge has immersed himself. The cover art is one of Edges paintings and depicts the Garland king of Castleton, Derbyshire.

The album was produced by Matthew Shaw (Shirley Collins, Tex La Homa, Spectral and the Pop Group) who after seeing a video for the song 'Green and Mutilated land" in which Ben had overlaid some of his footage of the Druid order from various equinox and solstice ceremonies, encouraged Ben to gather up all the songs he had and to record his debut solo album.
