All The Right Notes: Angeline Morrison

Angeline Morrison is a folk singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist whose 2022 album ‘The Sorrow Songs : Folk Songs of Black British Experience’ (Topic Records) was voted No 1 Folk Album of the year in The Guardian. Angeline explores traditional song with a deep reverence, love and curiosity, a handmade sonic aesthetic and a feeling for the stories of ordinary human lives.

Growing up in Nottinghamshire, Clarke Camilleri was very much a child of the UK blues/folk revival generation, and has since spent many years moving from country to country with his music, with his banjo usually over his shoulder; a true troubadour. Clarke explains, ‘I love the access that being a musician gives you into other lives; I like being brave with it and seeing where it gets me. As a result, I’ve heard a lots of stories from lots of different types of people. Some good and some not so good but these influence my songs greatly’.

Clarke released his debut solo album of original music, ‘The Rollin’ Hills of Home’ in 2020. He features on Angeline Morrison’s award winning album, ‘The Sorrow Songs: Folk Songs of Black British Experience’ (The Guardian Album of the Year 2022), which Angeline tours with her 4 piece band, of which Clarke is also a member. He collaborates with blues/folk musician Jinda Biant, and his brother Victor Camilleri under the name of the Good-Time Brothers. Alongside his music, Clarke has worked as a fisherman, construction worker, fruit picker, deck hand, plasterer, gardener and busker. He currently lives in the United Kingdom
