Back in print – a tremendously entertaining and ambitious compendium of English traditional dance music played by some of England’s finest folk-rock musicians.
Following the extraordinarily successful ‘Morris On’, Ashley Hutchings and John Kirkpatrick returned to the studio to record this ambitious collection – presenting a complete history of English traditional dance music played with brio and power, interspersed with leading actors reading from Charles Dickens, Thomas Hardy and William Shakespeare. Amongst the featured musicians are Simon Nicol, Phil Pickett, Sue Harris, Peter Knight, Ray Warleigh and Roger Swallow. One of the very finest folk-rock records from the early 1970s’ golden age.
