MORE Judy Dyble news/ Fairport

" Talking with strangers " new album news

Judy has added more teasers from the " Talking with strangers " album ( due for release July 2009 ), one of which will be of particular interest to KING CRIMSON fans

The rather epic " Harpsong " ( featuring Fripp,Ian McDonald and Pat Mastelotto) is now on myspace.

Second sample track snippet is of the beautiful " Grey October Day " (with Tim Bowness singing )


Judy's blog posts the following:

" A little bit of Grey October Day with the silky vocals of Tim Bowness.. this will be a single I think and a tantalising glimpse of the Harpsong - the 20 minute epic- this is a small section just before it all goes a bit bananas :-) There will be more and different tasters over the next few weeks. That's so mean isn't it? :-) "

Another of the many album contributors JULIANNE REGAN has also added samples to her myspace page for your aural delight... listen HERE

This album features a wide variety of guests and promises to be Judy's best yet.
