These recordings have the air of spontaneous, impromptu performance, a coming together to make music which is one of the hallmarks of the folk music scene. It is as if the recording engineers were allowed to eavesdrop on the music making - and captured frozen improvisations. The variety of sound on these albums is remarkable and the number of instruments and voices involved produces some remarkable programmes. But don't be fooled by the apparent ease - these musicians work hard, rehearsing and arranging behind the scenes (or discreetly working and honing their style during a jam session in a quiet town or country pub). The result is carefully crafted music which honours and past but which, like all living things, moves on and develops. Next time they play and sing the results will be different. The old folk melodies of the British Isles are honoured and respected, are treated as raw material for high quality music making.Folk Music from Wales presents lullabies, legends and country dances mixed with genteel drawing room music. Harp, voices, dulcimer and oboe bring a richness of sound to ancient songs with origins lost in the mists of time.PerformersIan GilesJohn SpiersJon BanksPaul SartinBenji KirkpatrickThe Amber QuartetIan Giles voicePaul Sartin fiddle & oboeJohn Spiers melodeonBenji Kirkpatrick bouzoukiDragonsfire Jon Banks medieval harpBen Grove mandolinHilary Perona-Wright guitarNigel Perona-Wright fluteAll arrangements by courtesy of the performers.
