about

First widely-available album by this East Coast Quartet, channeling pysch, classic folk-prog, and chamber-style arrangements into an exquisite package. Beautifully recorded by Greg Weeks, the songs are cast in rich, detailed arrangements with Alec K. Redfearn (The Eyesores), Greg Weeks and Meg Baird (the Espers), and several other Philadelphia-area luminaries contributing to the sweeping sound. At the heart is Margie's strong voice, cello, and guitar, leading the tunes with feeling and subtlety. While in the tradition of electric-trad legends such as Fairport Convention and Trees, Fern Knight's music rings of the intensely personal and is delivered with crystal clarity, not the hipster-fuzz obfuscation of some contempo "folk." M4W&A is Fern Knight's first domestic release, following their barely available debut on the German Normal label.
