Traditional and contemporary folk from the British Isles

TSCD907 FOLK MUSIC OF GREECE

Greece has long been attractive to travellers. Some are entranced by its picturesque islands, others prefer the sparse villages of the mountains. Many have experienced the famous hospitality of Greek peasants and shepherds, but only a few have heard their traditional music ‘in the raw’. This album presents examples of this music from various regions of Greece. The recordings were made during three field trips by Wolf Dietrich during 1966, ’67 and ’69.
