Devon Folklore Tapes repressing Two Witches

The folklore research and heritage project, Devon Folklore Tapes, which aims to document and rework Britain’s myths and legends via audio-visual interpretation, is repressing its first release: Devon Folklore Tapes Vol 1: Two Witches. Originally released in 2011 on a split cassette housed in a hollowed-out hardback book, the remastered reissue will be sold as a twin 10" gatefold edition that will include research notes and artwork.

Recorded by project founders David Chatton Barker and Ian Humberstone, Two Witches is a sonic interpretation of the story of Hannah Henley and Mar­iann Voaden: two 19th Century Devonshire women who practiced witchcraft.

Two Witches is set to be released 1 December and will be the first in a series of reissues planned for the label throughout 2015. More information here.
