From the Library: Folk Byways

Today on Radio Riel, we explore a wide vari­ety of British folk artists, from the 1950s to the present. Per­form­ers include such lumi­nar­ies of the British folk scene as Mad­dy Pri­or, Ewan Mac­Coll, Pen­tan­gle, Sandy Den­ny, Mar­tin Carthy, Dave Swar­brick, Nick Drake and many, many more, with mod­ern and tra­di­tion­al ren­der­ing of tra­di­tion­al songs, as well as orig­i­nal songs and bal­lads.

If at all pos­si­ble, don’t sim­ply keep today’s pro­gramme as back­ground music: tune in and lis­ten to the lyrics and the music. I am sure you’ll find it worth your while as we cov­er every­thing from songs of love, to the songs of labour, to com­men­tary on the state of the coun­try, both past and present.

Today’s pro­gramme on Radio Riel is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin and pro­duced in con­junc­tion with the Alexan­dri­an Free Library Con­sor­tium of Sec­ond Life. You can tune in now at http://music.radioriel.org .
