A wistful mother makes some simple home recordings in her sitting room during the 1950s. Little could she have known that decades later her son one of the most poetic and influential songwriters ever. Sixty years later, The Unthanks have brought their own unique interpretations of Molly’s extraordinary songs to life.

The Unthanks have teamed up with Molly’s daughter, actress Gabrielle Drake, who along with being an invaluable guide to Molly’s work, recorded her mother’s poems for The Unthanks to set to music. The Unthanks have also been able to interpret a few songs that Molly never recorded, based only on Gabrielle’s memory of them, transferred to the band using the oral tradition.
