Geoff Jerram is a well known and much respected singer, musician and morris dancer. A familiar face on the south's folk scene since the 1960s, for a while he was a resident singer at Southampton's Fo'c'sle folk club.

These days Geoff is best known for his singing, either unaccompanied, or subtly accompanied on English concertina or guitar, at Morris feasts and Ring Meetings and many of the songs he has made his own at such gatherings are included on this CD.

It has been much awaited, especially after Geoff guested on Steve Jordan's The Trees Scarce Green CD, to much critical acclaim. The CD features a mix of traditional folk songs, many collected locally around the turn of the last century and pastoral songs from an earlier period. This is Geoff's first CD, although he can also be heard on previous Forest Tracks' releases: The Flour of the Forest, The Trees Scarce Green and Folk Songs From Hampshire and Dorset.
