Check out the current issue 74 of Shindig! magazine for a feature by Adam Scovell on the music of the classic folk horror films Witchfinder General and The Blood on Satan’s Claw. The article is an abriged extract from an essay to be published in the next upcoming book from FHR/ Wyrd Harvest Press, Harvest Hymns covering the music of folk horror.
The book will be a mixture of articles, album reviews and interviews from the likes of Maddy Prior, John Cameron, Jim Jupp, Jonny Trunk, Sharon Kraus, Jim Moon, Rennie Sparks, Drew Mullholland and many more, and we hope to have it available early in the New Year. As a teaser here’s all the albums reviewed in the book:
