Folk Music Of England

£5.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This Album presents some of Englands finest folk musicians performing a selection of songs and instrumental music. These recordings have the air of spontaneous, impromptu performance, a coming together to make music, which is one of the hallmarks of the folk music scene. It is as is the recording engineers were allowed to eves drop on the music making – and captured frozen improvisations. The variety of sound on this album is remarkable and the number of instruments and voices involved produces some remarkable programmes. But don’t be fooled by the apparent ease – these musicians work hard, rehearsing and arranging behind the scenes (or discreetly working and honing their style during a jam session in a quiet town or country pub). The result is a carefully crafted music, which honours the past but which, like all living things, moves on and develops. Next time they play and sing the results will be different. The old folk melodies of England are honoured and respected are treated as raw material for high quality music making
