Saw this on TV - thought Bella Hardy didn't come over that well, with all the tuning up and seemed a bit ill-a-ease (nervous no doubt!). I'm sure she'd be better in a club or on a smaller stage. I'm not that familiar with Martin Simpson but he made a good impression - a likeable performer that drew your attention. Bellowhead were, of course, magnificent - must be the best English folk band around at the moment. Thanks for the downloads!

These look fascinating, is that your cover art too? Amazing and really appropriate

downloaded somewhere else by a friend.
I splitted some tracks and tagged all of them and designed cover arts starting from BBC-proms official page
I hope you enjoy it

cianfulli I don't want to pour cold water on your efforts with the proms recordings, the cover art is really good. I had the original recordings from digital radio from the concert.

However I feel I must comment, again on two aspects of virtually all your offerings ... TOO LOUD, you really do NOT need to master the levels up to the clipping point, back off a bit huh, this is NOT rubbish pop music, it does not have to be compressed to hell to sound good on a useless iPod, it's top quality folk, which the BBC go to great lengths to give us at superb quality, please don't mess it up!!
Secondly, I don't know about you, but I've been using a computer to store, file and manage my music for years, therefore "Simpson, Martin" and "Hardy, Bella" do NO credit to peoples awareness of the artists names, make searching difficult, and require correcting before storing, you are surely NOT using a library filing system in these days of modern computers?

The man is Martin Simpson, the girl is Bella Hardy OK. oh and by the way perhaps using your ideas it should be "Headbello" ..Do me /Us a favour please, come into the 21st century, I assume it IS 21st in Italy..?

Bella Hardy's solo album is great, but please buy it....we need to help young folk musicians in this country.
