The Band of Love is a supergroup of British folk musicians and vocalists brought together by producer, engineer, and multi-instrumentalist Mark Tucker (Pentangle, PJ Harvey).
There album Folk Fever fuses together disco and folk music - an unlikely match. One is of music of dance, of escape, of exultation, resistance, affirmation, celebration and sex; the other is a popular American black music genre of the late 1970s. But while British folk music and disco may seem more strangers in the night than kissin’ cousins, the recordings on Folk Fever show them to be joined at the hip, moving in step and ready for action. The album features 13 tracks of folk disco magnificence and brings together exciting new artists and respected veterans including Mike McGoldrick, Phil Beer & Steve Knightley (Show Of Hands), Patsy Reid, Matt Downer and Rune Cygan Barslund alongside The Band Of Love members Jim Causley, Greg Russell, Hannah Martin, Philip Henry and Alice Jones.
