Broadoak's recordings

Hand Made Heart

Hand Made Heart is our first CD. It's a mix of original songs, traditional songs, and covers that you might expect to hear at a gig. We recorded it 'as live', which means we were all in the same room, singing and playing exactly as we would at a concert. We rehearsed hard in the weeks leading up to recording, and so we were able to record it all in one day at StudiOwz - April 6th 2022. This is regarded as utter madness these days.

Track listing:

1 Once I had a true love
2 The Derby Refugee (Broadoak)
3 Bonny Portmore
4 Black is the Colour
5 Guillemot (Broadoak: from Birdsongs)
6 Counting (Broadoak)
7 Dacw ‘nghariad
8 If I had (Broadoak)
9 Half the world (Broadoak: from Abereiddy)
10 Magpie (Davey Dodds)
11 Go to town (Emily Smith)

And she flies

And she flies is our second album, published in May 2024. It's another mix of original material, traditional songs in our arrangements, and covers. We have used a mix of recording techniques this time, so we have been able to achieve a fuller sound than we can when we play live. Some of the tracks are still 'as live', and none the worse for that, but on others we have layered the instruments and voices in ways that are physically impossible at a gig. We love the sound that the album has allowed us to achieve.

Track listing:

1 Dark Eyed Sailor
2 Famous Victories (Broadoak)
3 Dancer (Broadoak)
4 Coscoroba (Broadoak)
5 White Dress (Denny/Swarbrick)
6 Viennese Café (Broadoak)
