The widely acclaimed "Voice Of The People" series continues with four further volumes of the finest Traditional Song, edited by Dr Reg Hall and compiled by some of the foremost folksong experts.
Shirley Collins was invited to select and present this remarkably powerful collection of songs by Southern English Traditional Singers from classic recordings made in the 1950s by Peter Kennedy and Bob Copper.
The emphasis in the presentation of this widely acclaimed series of the Voice of the People has been weighted towards the social lives and values of the performers. Shirley Collins is particularly well-appointed for working on the material contained in this volume and 'Ir019m a Romany Rai' is that she knew Peter Kennedy and Bob Copper at the time they were making these recordings. She worked with both of them in various ways and was caught up at the time in the excitement of the discovery of these and many other singers and their songs.
