From the Library: English Folk Compendium

Today’s pro­gramme fea­tures some of the great­est names from the Eng­lish folk music scene over the past half a cen­tu­ry.

You’ll hear artists from the orig­i­nal hey­day of folk music, such as Sandy Den­ny — with both Fotheringay and Fair­port Con­ven­tion; Pen­tan­gle; Gryphon; Anne Brig­gs; June Tabor; Mad­dy Pri­or and many more.

In addi­tion there are some more recent con­tri­bu­tions includ­ing updat­ed tra­di­tion­al songs from The Imag­ined Vil­lage, and a com­pre­hen­sive his­tor­i­cal anthol­o­gy con­tain­ing many land­mark names from the annals of British folk music.

Illus­trat­ed: albums from two of today’s fea­tured artists: Fair­port Con­ven­tion’s Liege & Lief and The Imag­ined Vil­lage’s Empire & Love.

Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin and pro­duced by Radio Riel in con­junc­tion with the Alexan­dri­an Free Library Con­sor­tium of Sec­ond Life. You can lis­ten to the pro­gramme now at in-world, or sim­ply click here.
