From the Library: Folk Byways

Today on Radio Riel, we explore a wide vari­ety of British folk artists, pay­ing spe­cial atten­tion to con­tem­po­rary artists and includ­ing both 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.

This pro­gramme is part of our ongo­ing series, From the Library. Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin and pro­duced by Radio Riel in asso­ci­a­tion with the Alexan­dri­an Free Library Con­sor­tium of Sec­ond Life. You can lis­ten now at http://loudcity.com/stations/radio-riel/tune_in. Out­side the Unit­ed States you can also tune in to http://music.radioriel.org or sim­ply click here to launch your defined play­er.
