The album No Sadness of Farewell 2017


In 2017 Doggerland released an album of traditional and contemporary material on the Swedish label Gammalthea and the German label Westpark Music.

The album features both self-penned and traditional material from both sides of the North Sea, as well as songs by Ewan MacColl and Richard Thompson. 

The album was received with acclaim by the international music press:

“Feinfühlig arrangiert und hinreißend gesungen... ” Folker (D) 

“An absolute cracker!” The Mike Harding Folk Show (UK) 

“Elva klämmiga bitar, tryggt och vältajmat utförda av ett fint band. Svängit och medryckande… Härligt!” Spelmannen (S)
