Thread Name: The Cecil Sharp Project - January 2012
Subject: RE: The Cecil Sharp Project - March 2011
The CD is Songline's Best Album of 2011.

Inspired by the work of seminal folksong collector Cecil Sharp, particularly his Appalachian expeditions of 1915-18. Steve Knightley, Jim Moray and Jackie Oates, Andy Cutting and Patsy Reid join Southern US roots specialist Caroline Herring and Canadian clawhammer banjo ace Leonard Podolak of The Duhks to perform the set of newly-written and traditional material, exploring the life and legacy of this pivotal but enigmatic figure.

Caroline Herring and Kathryn Roberts have a second date at Cecil Sharp House on Saturday, January 28.
