Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Eddi Reader (vocals); Ian Car (guitar); John McCusker (fiddle); Andy Cutting (accordion); Donald Shaw (harmonium); Ewen Vernal (bass guitar); Roy Dodds (drums).
  • Scottish folk singer Kris Drever's debut album combines traditional British and Celtic folk influences and more contemporary rock elements. Very much in the style of the post-Fairport Convention school of folk-rock from the United Kingdom (a tradition that includes Drever's father, Ivan Drever of the cult heroes Wolfstone), BLACK WATER is a solid, entertaining listen, highlighted by Drever's warm, expressive vocals and simple, elegant guitar work, backed by a small electric band including fiddle and accordion.
Professional Reviews
Q (p.111) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "A strong natural singer and top-notch guitarist, BLACK WATER is a canny mix of traditional material and contemporary 'message' songs..."

Dirty Linen (p.79) - "It is an excellent debut with promise for the future. Notable tracks include 'Harvest Gypsies,' Braw Sailin' on the sea,' and 'Navigator.'"

Dirty Linen (p.55) - "Drever has a distinctively rich voice....['Green Grows The Laurel'] is given a fine new shine because of Drever's lovely vocals and arrangement."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.115) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The album's full of gentle, liquid playing....You don't have to be down with the latest in roots manoeuvres to acknowledge that Kris Drever is a serious talent."
