Review of The Queen's Lover
Penny Black Music - Malcolm Carter - 10th October 2012
…both Russell and Algar are exceptional musicians and have, on their debut, shown maturity and an understanding of their chosen genre that is rare in people so young. That Russell is also blessed with one of the best voices this country currently has to offer is an added bonus. A whole album featuring instrumental pieces of the calibre shown on ‘The Queen’s Lover’ would be welcomed in folk circles; but coupled with that voice they just can’t fail. This is obviously just the beginning of a very long and successful career for both Russell and Algar, ‘The Queen’s Lover’ is a remarkable debut and there is a lot more to come yet from this talented duo.
