Description

Since its foundation in 1987, Veteran has produced over 40 albums of traditional music from England, Ireland and Scotland. Most of these were originally released as audio cassettes but are now being re-issued on CD, either as entire albums or as compilations such as this one. For people all over England, market day in their local town was an occasion to meet, shop and trade and it was also the one day that pubs were open all day. Not surprisingly, many old singers have said it was the occasion for a song or two to be sung. Here we have a celebration of traditional English unaccompanied singing, mainly from the southern half of the country, with performers from South Yorkshire to Gloucestershire and from Sussex to Derbyshire. These are not professional singers but working people who sing songs from their own rural and urban back-grounds, who would always be happy to meet up with other singers and entertain the crowd gathered in their local market tavern.
