Old Adam is a fresh and original exploration of how we use stories and music to understand what it means to be human and combines not only Fay's gift for unearthing striking material but also her distinctive and naturalistic delivery of it. These qualities have won her critical acclaim for her previous solo albums including several BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and a nomination for Folk Singer of the Year.
Old Adam contains 14 tracks, ranging from the The Hag in the Beck (from the 1600s) to The Briar and the Rose (a version of a Tom Waits song).
