Description

Curated by Bellowhead's Jon Boden, this double album presents a fascinating collection of English folk songs performed by names familiar to all and those unheard as yet; arrangements of only traditional songs that are at least a hundred years old and generally of unknown or collective authorship.

Includes a 28-page booklet with Boden's introduction to English folk music, information on each of the songs and the stellar collection of musicians. With nearly two-and-a-half hours of music, this is the Ultimate Guide to English Folk.
