‘Morrison’s courage in reconstructing folk repertoire is truly revolutionary. A groundbreaking album.’ New Internationalist Magazine 5 ***** 

‘Bewitching and otherworldly… Morrison’s voice is eerily confiding, strangely present, insistent even at its quietest.’ Folk Radio UK



For further information on the band see Angeline Morrison & The Sorrow Songs Band.


Angeline Morrison is a singer, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter who explores traditional song with a deep love, respect and curiosity.

Angeline mostly makes music in the genres of wyrd folk and psych folk, her work infused with elements of soul music, literature, ‘60s beat pop sounds, folklore, myth and the supernatural. With a feral approach, a handmade sonic aesthetic and a belief in the importance of tenderness, Angeline’s original compositions and re-stitchings of traditional songs focus on storytelling and the small things that often go unnoticed. 

Following the October 2022 release of The Sorrow Songs: Folk Songs of Black British Experience on Topic Records, Angeline made her television debut on Later…with Jools Holland in, and there was a major Guardian interview. The album uses history and imagination to tell stories of UK Black ancestors in the sonic style of UK traditional and folk music.


Angeline’s The Sorrow Songs was The Guardian Folk Album of the Year in 2022:

‘The dazzling culmination of an ambitious lockdown project by the Birmingham-born, Cornwall-dwelling Morrison – a gorgeous singer and multi-instrumentalist – to create a living catalogue of Black British folk song. Produced masterfully by Eliza Carthy (whose dad, Martin, also takes part), well-known ballads mix with moving originals about real Black Britons, creating a startling record of resistance, rebellion and celebration.’ The Guardian

‘A ballad maker for our time’
The Arts Desk

‘A ground-breaking album.’
Folk Radio

‘An authentic, brave folk voice of black British experience.’ 

‘An important, essential folk album.’
Americana-UK (9/10)

‘Unequivocally one of the finest, and most important folk albums of this, or indeed, any year.’
