The Nelson Brothers 

“The Nelson Brothers are undeniably very fine. The songs on this album are a wonderful synergy of thoughtful lyrics, accomplished music and resonant vocals, and reflect the many influences that they have been fortunate to experience over the years.” David Pratt – Folk Radio UK “Migrant Tales leads the listener on a thoroughly enjoyable and evocative musical trip, it would be foolish not to get on board and share in their journey.” - David Pratt – Folk Radio UK. “I initially loaded this CD and began listening to the first track, I did wonder whether I had received a mis-pressing, and that what I actually had was an unreleased Johnny Cash circa American III or IV gem, such was its similarity to the output on those albums, (compliment intended).” Folk Radio UK “Stephen Nelson’s voice – he really is a dead ringer for Johnny Cash! If you like Americana you’ll love this” Rock Society Magazine “It’s best defined as roots music with many eclectic touches, where you’re as likely to hear a bouzouki as a bass guitar, yet where the songs are always central to proceedings.” Nick Dalton, journalist.
“The music and the voice and the lyrics all work together to convey a bittersweet, sad optimism that I find so appealing... romantic without being remotely saccharine and refreshingly grown up.” Elizabeth McGovern, actress, Downton Abbey, Once Upon a Time in America.

And bassist is either Andrew Milloy or Ben Nicholls, from trendy folkies the Full English.
Album: Migrant Tales (2018)
Migrant Tales is not quite a concept album - but it has a loose theme running throughout. The songs are about the Irish Diaspora - the Irish people and their descendant who live outside of Ireland - hence the title Migrant Tales. That’s why The Nelson Brothers own ancestry is foremost.
We grew up in Stafford in the English Midlands, but our roots go back to Ireland.
Our great, great grandparents, Patrick and Catherine Corcoran, came from Tibohine parish six miles north of Castlerea in Co. Roscommon. They survived the immediate impact of The Famine but moved to Stafford, England in the 1850s.
Our maternal great grandfather, Bartholomew Corcoran, was a plumber, glazier and painter. “Corcoran was the first Irish Catholic to be elected to Stafford Borough Council. He was the trail-blazer and he deserves recognition for that fact alone.” Historian John Herson.
When his first wife died Bartholomew remarried, Beatrice, forty-one years his junior. They had six children, three of whom survived, one of whom was Patrick, our grandfather.
We grew up in easier times, things had changed and we were hungry to see the world. Some of that wanderlust no doubt sprang from our ancestry and before long we were heading west like many before us. Indeed, four of the children from Bartholomew’s first marriage immigrated to America and settled in Philadelphia. There’s a song on the album called Billy Corcoran, which is a fictitious account of a relative emigrating to the US.
Like many of those earlier travellers, our first port of call was Boston Massachusetts. We explored the city on foot, purchased guitars, a small sound system and a car and headed north to New Hampshire.
Since that first trip we have explored, gigged, written and recorded in Bermuda, Australia, Amsterdam, New York, Tennessee, Arizona, New Mexico, California and the Florida Keys. Migrant Tales, written over a twenty year period, explores our ancestry, our childhood longing for adventure, our journeys into the heart of America, and our relationship with those who went before. The high desert and the lonesome prairie, the long stretches of highway, the mighty rivers, loves won and lost, lives lived and left behind, are intertwined in the lyrics of the songs.
Musically the collection incorporates elements of rootsy folk, country, blues, and nineteenth century parlour ballads.
