IMAGINED VILLAGE PROJECT

Currently touring with the Imagined Village Project, featuring English folk legends Martyn and Eliza Carthy, Paul Weller, Benjamin Zephenia, Billy Bragg, Chris Wood.

The Imagined Village album grew out of a discussion prompted by the BBC Radio 3 documentary "A Place Called England", which addressed the blind spot amongst the English concerning their own musical heritage. The Imagined Village is also influenced by Georgina Boyes' book of the same name, which examined the pivotal impact Victorian and Edwardian song collectors, most notably Cecil Sharp, made on the development of an English music repertoire. They were the original folk revivalists whose work left an amazing legacy for future generations. As with most legacies, the treasures contained within are open to re-examination and as society and music changes, the song may not always remain the same.
