About Serious Sam Barrett’s upcoming new release “The Seeds Of Love”:
Barret states: “A year or so ago my wife came home with a book published by the English Folk Music and Dance Society called “The Seeds of Love”. I was immediately taken with how beautiful the book was and a large part of this record is comprised of songs from the book. In a lot of cases I was new to the songs and I simply read the verses from the page and waited for a melody to come to me that I thought fitted the words. For some I already knew the song and decided to play it straight with the traditional melody. For some time I’ve wanted to make a record with a very traditional feel, a “proper folk record” and this book really helped that along. One way or another all the songs on this record are songs of love, be it tragic, misguided, unrequited or true”.
