Folk Music of England

This album and its companion volumes – Folk Music of Ireland (CCLCDG1017), Folk Music of Scotland (CCLCDG1018) and Folk Music of Wales (CCLCDG1019) – present some of Britain’s finest folk musicians performing a selection of songs and instrumental music from the British and Irish folk traditions. The recordings have the air of spontaneous performance, of musical friends coming together to make music, which is one of the hallmarks of the folk music scene. It is as if the recording engineers were present at a ‘jam’ session, capturing inspired improvisations. The variety of sound on the albums is remarkable, the combinations of instruments and voices producing some remarkable programmes. But do not be fooled by the apparent ease of the performances – these musicians work hard, rehearsing and arranging behind the scenes (or discreetly working and honing their style during appearances in quiet town or country pubs). The result is carefully crafted music which honours the past but which, like all living traditions, moves on and develops.


Folk Music of England presents songs from throughout the country. Local songs from Lancashire (tracks 9 – 11) rub shoulders with the ‘Lincolnshire Poacher’. Morris tunes mix with sailors’ hornpipes, drinking songs with songs of harvest and hunting, in a recording celebrating the mixture of seafaring and country living that has marked the development of England over the centuries.
