‘Mass Trespass’ was recorded in North London’s seminal Crypt Studtios and was produced by BBC Radio 2 Folk Award-nominee (and all-round top chap) Ben Walker. It’s been a big old labour of love, spanning the full range of our musical reach, and we sincerely hope you enjoy it!
‘Mass Trespass’ was named for a famous protest in 1932 on Kinder Scout, a mountain in the Peak District in northern England, which helped to establish the right to roam across open land in England & Wales. Ringlefinch singer Andy grew up in the village below, and was raised on stories of the courage of the hundreds of people who defied landowers and police, trespassing across the moors for their belief that we all have a right to the wilderness. ‘Mass Trespass’ is a tribute to, and a celebration of, pushing back the boundaries.
