Torrent description

Shirley Collins & Davy Graham - Folk Roots, New Routes (1964) - British Folk Music

Folk Roots, New Routes was more than just a record when it first came out in 1964. It granted permission to a whole generation of English musicians to blend their indigenous folk music with just about any other material that they could imagine. Collins' gorgeous soprano voice was a picture of purity; she could, and often did, sing the music of rural English people from past generations in the traditional unaccompanied way. But on this record she joined forces with a flashy, acoustic guitarist, Davy Graham.

Over four decades later the album is still a landmark in British folk music. What endures is the drop-dead beauty and understated musicality of Collins' singing. Music doesn't get much lovelier than this.

Shirley Collins grew up in Hastings, a town in Suffolk, England. There she learned folk music the old-fashioned way, from her mother's family. She subsequently broadened this knowledge by working with legendary American ethnomusicologist and song collector Alan Lomax during his travels through America and England, and applied her inclusive understanding of folk music to a wide variety of settings in a recording career that spanned the years from 1959 to 1978. Davy Graham grew up the son of a Gaelic teacher father and a Ghanaian mother in Edinburgh, Scotland, a background that doubtless influenced his own omnivorously eclectic guitar playing.

Shirley Collins is considered to be one of the key influences in the British folk revival of the 1960's.
