The Copper Suite (live at Real World Studios)

Spiro

‘The Copper Suite’ was written for the centenary celebration of Bob Copper’s life and work, at Cecil Sharp House in London on 24th January 2017. As the only instrumental group invited to take part in the event, Spiro were very honoured to join the fabulous array of performers from the world of English folk music, and to perform a specially composed instrumental suite based on tunes from the Copper family repertoire. The piece was recorded and mixed in The Big Room at Real World Studios.

‘The Copper Suite’ is based on the following traditional English tunes from the repertoire of the Copper family: ‘The Bold Fisherman’, ‘Lord Thomas’ and ‘Spencer the Rover’.  All other composition by Jon Hunt/Alex Vann/Jane Harbour.
