about

"Absolutely irresistible" - The Living Tradition
"Full of energy and passion" - FolkWorld
"A most excellent and flavoursome lockdown lightener!" - Ed Johnson

First Steps is more than just a list of our favourite tunes, these sets have been growing and changing with every performance, crafted together to take you on a journey across beautiful musical landscapes.

It’s a mixture of familiar and lesser-known tunes, with a couple of our own compositions thrown in. Our music is steeped in playing for dancing, so we didn’t want to lose those grooves. Instead we’ve combined them with a range of styles, timbres and shades to capture our listeners.

This is an album packed full of raw traditional music. It’s us sitting down for an hour and enjoying playing tunes together, a comprehensive introduction to Brown Boots.
