From The Library… A British Folk Anthology

Today’s pro­gramme in the series From the Library… fea­tures a selec­tion of folk music from the British Isles, includ­ing such nota­bles as Mad­dy Pri­or, June Tabor and Nick Drake – but also mag­i­cal artists like Kate Rus­by and long-for­got­ten She­lagh McDon­ald, and an occa­sion­al tune from across the water.

Like a writ­ten anthol­o­gy, this pro­gramme claims only to be a col­lec­tion and not an exhaus­tive exam­i­na­tion of the field: indeed, there is plen­ty of mate­r­i­al for many more.

• This pro­gramme is pro­duced by Radio Riel in con­junc­tion with the Cale­don Library in Sec­ond Life, and pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin. For more infor­ma­tion on the Cale­don Library, cur­rent exhibits and the work of Sec­ond Life ref­er­ence libraries in gen­er­al, please vis­it the Cale­don Library Web site, or one of their loca­tions in-world.

• You can lis­ten to the pro­gramme now at, or sim­ply vis­it any Cale­don Library branch in-world and press Play on your embed­ded music play­er.
