CDs you need to hear

CDs, mostly freshly gathered from the folk pigeon.

Fresh from Warwick Folk Festival (where we didn't actually get to see any of the acts, but that's another story), Genevieve plays for you the best of the harvest of folk CDs. Look forward to Jimmy Aldridge & Sid Goldsmith, Jess & Richard Arrowsmith, Assynt, Simon Cousins and one that we've had on the desk for a while: tracks from Leon Rosselson's The World Turned Upside Down. You've heard many people cover his songs, but this is the man himself.
