Distant Havens reviews

fRoots (David Kidman)

"The Foxglove Trio are one of the most distinctive of today's young ensembles. A truly enchanting release all round.

Songlines (Tim Woodall) ****

"A fresh, modern folk sound... This is a group that uses tradition in the best way possible - to create something new and beautiful."

Folk Radio UK (Mike Davies)

"Highly accomplished and musically complex for such limited instrumentation, this could deservedly well find itself among next year's BBC Radio 2's Folk Awards nominations." Read more on the Folk Radio UK website

Living Tradition (John Waltham)

"This is one of the most delightful CDs that I've heard in recent months, combining excellent singing, fine harmonies and commendable musical ability in what is largely a very successful format."

Northern Sky (Liam Wilkinson)

"There are so many reasons to love The Foxglove Trio... [Distant Havens] keeps your ear superglued to the speakers by, once again, delivering a collection of fetching takes on traditional and contemporary songs." (Dai Jeffries)

"This is a splendid album, and I wish the trio every success with it." Read more on

Folk Wales (Mick Tems)

"Distant Havens is a sheer delight... The Trio strike brilliant sparks...they are a force to be reckoned with." Read more on the Folk Wales website

Bright Young Folk (Christopher C Leslie)

"The Foxglove Trio achieve a more complete sound than a trio should... The Foxglove Trio have a real and exciting chemistry that allows them to produce a novel and interesting sound. As they continue to innovate they are a band to follow." Read more on the Bright Young Folk website
