Home Service was formed from the creative nucleus of the Albion Band line-up that produced the classic Rise Up Like the Sun album and features John Tams, Graeme Taylor, Steve King, Jon Davie, Michael Gregory, Paul Archibald, Roger Williams and Andy Findon. The reunion of this classic band is due to the recent discovery of some previously unheard (let alone unreleased) live recordings. These recordings exhibit a power and commitment that was never fully captured in the studio, so a live album release immediately became inevitable. With an album to promote in 2011, live performances were the obvious next step. At the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2012 they won the Best Live Act 2012. Home Service are well and truly back.

I cannot remember having more fun in a performance in my whole career. Laugh? I nearly bought the place a round... Two, maybe even three shows next time at that very special venue.
