‘A Higher Refrain’ is a live performance by Ian Hawgood using kalimba, reel-to-reel machines and a number of reverb and loop pedals. The same set-up was used for the Kinder Scout material back in 2010 - 2011, and a studio recorded version of this was edited and re-worked for the Danny Norbury collaboration ‘Faintly Recollected’, due out later in 2017.

Let's put it this way- this is simply one of our favourite works ever!...A collection of variations on a theme that drift by, perfuming the air, or that stop a moment to whisper you a story. Evocative in its sparse beauty, We are sure this will been the permanent playlist always, right alongside Arvo Part's "Alina" and offthesky's "Silent went the Sea" ....ss/tm/am editions vaché
