Session | Bird In The Belly – Horace in Brighton


We present our second session track, ‘Horace in Brighton’, from folk collective Bird In The Belly. The band have spent the last 12 months recording songs and stories that have either never before been recorded or are rarely recorded – all set to contemporary folk music, in the hopes of reintroducing these songs back into the folk canon. This particular song is based on a poem written by English poet and novelist Horace Smith in 1815.

Their debut album, The Crowing is out now and can be found via their site. You can also hear it, with track-by-track commentary, right here.

Keep up with the band on Facebook and Twitter. If you missed it, don’t forget to check out their first session track, ‘Shoreham River‘.
