ULTIMATE GUIDE TO WELSH FOLK
The next release in ARC Music’s The Ultimate Guide series: The Ultimate Guide to Welsh folk, compiled by Cerys Matthews. This compilation has used the largest “net” possible to fish out of Wales’ musical coasts and rivers. The aim: To include some of the most beautiful and recognizable songs of the Welsh folk repertoire, and also, to bring together the voices of some of the most well-loved and influential artists that have sung these over the years. One will find artists from different regions sitting next to each other, singing in different dialects, and songs recorded in different decades, with different production techniques, and musicians from different camps who will pull and puh with and against the definition of the folk genre. Cerys Matthews MBE is a musician, author, and festival owner. She is also a DJ on the BBC World Service and BBC 6 Music where she programmes and hosts an award-winning, all era, all genre weekly show.
