Folk Legacy – Historic live recordings sampling the treasures of our archives –
These are now historic live recordings from the Girvan Folk Festival. We believe that this is an important archive giving considerable insight into performers from Scotland, Ireland, England and Wales. The recordings include the interaction between artist and audience. As ‘live’ recordings they may not be perfect – but then again they may be! These two CDs were compiled to give a flavour of the archive.
