Folk news

- I guess all of you are just waiting for the new 19 CD Sandy Denny box scheduled for October release? Read all about it in the Sandy Denny blog.
- I found the above info on the blog Electric Eden, started by Rob Young who has written the book "Electric Eden: Unearthing Britain's Visionary Music" (Faber & Faber 2010).According to the author it is the story of "folk, folk-rock, psychedelia and the 'British imagination in the music of the past 100 years or so".
Amazon´s release date is in August, but Young is hoping to see in the shops in june. OK, let´s agree on July then! (And I won´t link to his blog, because it seems like we get stuck there, with no possibility to get back to MY blog! Here is the address http://www.electriceden.net/)
- Richard Thompson´s new album "Dream Attic" will be releasead in the end of August. He is joined by the following musicians: Michael Jerome (drums), Taras Prodaniuk (bass), Pete Zorn (multi-instruments, background vocals) and Joel Zifkin (violin).
