There are many ways to create a great folk track. Sometimes, a song is perfect for the foot stomping brashness of Mumford’s first two albums. Sometimes, a tall tale calls for a countrified bluegrass feel. But some songs simply need an acoustic guitar, an endearing vocal and a few instrumental flavours built in for good measure.
‘Wild Mountain Thyme’ is a track in the vein of the latter, and it’s free to download now from Philip Murray Warson.
Also, there’s more where that came from – his full, self-titled EP is out now on Bandcamp.
