"Folk Songs"

Sunday, January 22, 2012

Why the quotation marks?  For this New Sounds we’ll hear tunes that might sound like folk songs, but are actually new songs in the folk tradition. Some actually are traditional tunes, as in those from the Carter Family repertoire – in the case of a Bill Frisell offering, and some are extensions of the tradition, which draw from rural Appalachian and early Americana.

New Sound of British Folk

Saturday, October 30, 2010

A new generation picks up the mantle of English folk/rock revivalists like Pentangle and Fairport Convention on this New Sounds program.  This new sound of British folk includes songs from Rachel Unthank & The Winterset (now just the Unthanks), young musicians who play very old music from Northumbria, a region of England rich in folklore and folk music.
