By Jane Howkins

In The Field is one of the most unique songs I’ve heard in a long time, sounding very different from a lot of the folk music you tend to hear normally. It’s a slow, atmospheric piece with cinematic qualities, evoking a great sense of peace within the self. It was recorded on a Pullman banjola made in 1897 and a Regal resonator from the 1950s, making it all sound very impressive Check out the gorgeous video below:
