AllMusic Review by

David Nigel Lloyd is a artist who's been around the folk circuit, paid his dues, and established his own variation in that multifaceted genre, with a wide variety of themes, and material from traditional Celtic ballads, like "Rosin the Bow," to his own compositions, such as "Rebecca Rebecca." The latter is not only his best-known track from the album, but probably his most widely heard and recognized, as it aired across North America on the CBS Late Night With David Letterman show in 1998. His subject matter ranges from the downfall of the British Empire in "Poor Little Englishman!" to the Vietnam War, with "And Keep Our Foe at Bay" and all around the world in between. Fans of both folk and Celtic music will find An Age of Fable to be a welcome addition to their collections.
