Wynne Evans: Wynne - an album guide
Moving across to America now, Wynne puts his stamp on a traditional favourite, Shenandoah. This American folk song was originally popular as a sea chanty, but it's reinterpreted here with thick string textures and harps. "It's the first time I’ve really sung this song - I’ve just really admired it from a distance before. I love this tune and the lyrics are so poignant and instant. A beautiful American folk song that I hope we’ve given a new twist to."
