Some of the musicians who rose to prominence during the British folk rock movement of the 1960s were also proficient performers and supporters of early music. That premise led to this album, on which Ayreheart blends together the "art” and “folk” traditions so seamlessly and so organically that listeners are reminded just how artificial such a separation actually is. The programme begins with the familiar John Barleycorn, recorded by several folk-rockers, most famously the group Traffic. Ayreheart's Brian Kay is heralded as a modern day troubadour who performs vocals, lute and komuz on this release, joined by Grammy-nominated lutenist and composer Ronn McFarlane, both aiming to incorporate the lute into today’s musical mainstream.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
