One of the most celebrated folk artists still recording and performing today, a 7-times winner at the BBC Folk Awards. In 2000 John Tams released Unity, and nobody in the folk world could quite believe it was his first solo album. Tams had, after all, established himself as a key member of The Albion Band – recording one of their finest albums, Rise Up Like the Sun.

Then rising out of the ashes of The Albion Band came Home Service, an eight-piece band, precursors of the current big band trend, strong on politics and exhilarating performances highlighted by a trademark English brass sound and powerful guitarist Graeme Taylor that hinged around Tams' uplifting singing and insightful songs.

Unity was a double winner at the 2001 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards for Best Album and Best New Song. Check out his spellbinding reading of 'Bitter Withy' or his compelling and moving re-making of 'A Man of Constant Sorrow'.
