Editorial Reviews

Conceived by Simon Emmerson, The Imagined Village refreshes a collection of classic English folk songs with the multi-ethnic sounds of today's UK - adding a dose of sitar, dub soundscapes, beats, banghra, dhol drums and an extraordinary array of talent - to revivify a beloved traditional repertoire for the 21st century. Favorites like "John Barleycorn" and "Cold Hailey Rainy Night" are given radical new treatments and the magical ballad "Tam Lyn" is retold as a tale of urban clubland amid a parade of great voices and wonderful playing. The all-star cast includes Emmerson, Afro Celts bandmates Johnny Kalsi, Paul Weller, Billy Bragg, Martin Carthy, Sheila Chandra, Trans-Global Underground, Chris Wood, Tunng, the COpper Family, Tiger Moth, the Gloworms and Benjamin Zephaniah - an astonishing line-up for a stunning and totally unique album.
