Mojo Magazine's Top Folk Album Of 2011!

Twenty-one years ago June Tabor and Oysterband collaborated on the classic Freedom And Rain album frequently regarded as one of the top five folk albums of all time. Over the intervening years they have occasionally performed together at gigs and in 2010 were invited to reunite for Froots magazine's 30th birthday party at the Roundhouse. They all came off-stage determined to make a belated follow-up. The magnificent Ragged Kingdom arguably surpasses the earlier recording.

"There's enough emotional power here to fuel a circuit of the sun. The reunion of Oysterband and Tabor has created a masterpiece." - Songlines

"Striking gold by fusing the contemporary and traditional is at the heart of the folk process. Ragged Kingdom raises the alchemy of that process to the highest level." - The Independent

"This was worth waiting for." - The Guardian

"[Ragged Kingdom] adheres to the same formula as 1990's Freedom and Rain, with a mixture of traditional obscurities and unique interpretations of contemporary pop/rock songs, but backed by Al Scott's strident production it's a much bolder and more expansive affair than its predecessor... a record, which, more than two decades on, effortlessly rekindles the magic of their last effort, and is just as likely to attain the same cherished status." - Jon O'Brien, AllMusic, Rated 4/5
