Gwilym Davies

Folk music is universal, found in every country in the world and popularised here by performers such as Joan Baez and Steeleye Span. English folk song collectors, Cecil Sharp and Ralph Vaughan Williams, spent many hours noting the music, and in this book you will hear how the author has enthusiastically continued the work, discovering hidden gems of our heritage, recording folk songs and tunes, mainly from southern England and the USA. This book describes the colourful characters he met and here we find drinking songs, children's ditties, old ballads, wassails and bawdy tales.
