The Bara Bara Band return with their forthcoming album The Seeds Inside (The Grapes Upon The Vine), out on 15th September 2017 via Singaround Records. From the politically charged lyrics of 'More and More' and 'All Look the Same' to their takes on traditional tales such as 'What Put The Blood' and 'The Barley & The Rye’, they effortlessly blend the new with the old. Possibly the most striking song is an original arrangement of a broadside about the politician Plimsoll who, in the 1800s, canvassed for better safety on cargo ships where owners were sending sailors off to their deaths to cash in on insurance. Over the past few years, the band have gone from strength to strength, receiving praise from the likes of Folk Radio UK, FATEA Magazine and Folk Words to name but a few.
