English Drinking Songs - A L ‘Bert’ Lloyd

£5.49

Product description

A L ‘Bert’ Lloyd occupied a unique position in the folksong revival of the 1950s and ’60s. He was a musicologist with an international reputation, who wrote on the social history of British folk music and broadcast many series on traditional musics of the world. A learned and kindly mentor to younger singers, he was himself a performer of great charm, who united in his performances a scholar’s respect for text and a singer’s instinct for expression.
These songs of merriment and mayhem were of the kind, Lloyd said, that might be heard ‘around the barroom table of a little country alehouse on a Saturday night not drinking songs in the strict sense – not songs merely in praise of liquor’ but songs that ‘tell a bit of a story songs as sly as a tinker’s wink, as rough as a ploughman’s hand.’ They are accompanied on banjo or concertina. The CD is in excellent condition
