9 tracks 31 minutes. The first full length album from Nancy Wallace, voice of The Memory Band and the first release for Midwich Records, a new label from the minds of The Owl Service; bringing together the best of British folk outsiders with the vision to see beyond the restrictions of simply being folk artists

As the voice of The Memory Band, Nancy Wallace will already be familiar to many. After two albums of effortless modern folk classics with The Memory Band, Nancy is now finally ready to release her debut album.

Her debut solo release, the Young Hearts EP from 2005, saw Nancy's appeal reach a wider audience with its canny marrying of disco anthems to a folk sound. It won the hearts of everyone who heard it and tracks from the EP have been licensed to several compilation albums. On Old Stories, traditional songs sit happily alongside Nancy's original compositions with a flow so effortless you forget which is which and the relaxed sound and simple yet rich arrangements compliment her voice perfectly. A charming modesty presides over the whole set but the one enduring thing you take away from listening to this album is that Nancy Wallace is a huge talent.
