From Strawbs homepage, news of a forthcoming album “The Ferryman’s Curse”. It will be the first album of all new material since 2009. The title track is supposed to be a sequel to “The Vision of the Lady of the Lake” which appeared on the Dragonfly album from 1970. It also marked Rick Wakeman’s first appearance in album notes though he had played as session musician for several artists prior to that.
Perhaps buoyed by Rolling Stone’s selection of Hero and Heroine as one of the 50 best prog rock albums of all time, Cousins and company may hearken back to their most prog period of H&H and Ghosts. “The Broken Hearted Bride” from 2008 came close but was let down by a few average songs towards the end.
It looks like there will be opportunities to help finance the project made available shortly
