Format: Audio CD
From the "traditional" like Hannah James and Sam Sweeney, to the "progressive" like Bellowhead, from the solo fiddle of Duncan Chisholm to the electronic rock stylings of Treacherous Orchestra (my favourite track on the album) just about every sub-genre of folk is covered in this compilation. As a relative novice in the field I enjoy compilations like this as it introduces me to some unknown pleasures. Those with more in depth knowledge may be more familiar with much that is on here but regardless, if you love folk music you will find plenty to love on this album. It also serves to show you where the real talent lies in British music where modern themes as well as traditional styles are being taken up by people who can actually sing and play their instruments. Comparing this great compilation with the vapid nonsense exemplified by the X factor etc you are left feeling that there is some hope still for "proper" music.

This collection is a great selection from this year's BBC folk awards winners (2CDs) and a further CD from nominees.
The last album has a few weak tracks but it's still listenable. I'd recommend this collection to anyone with an interest in folk music.

Got this because I like folk music but don't have a great knowledge of whats out there at the moment. So thought this would be a good selection and starting point. I don't think there is a bad track on the album, of course some will stick with you more than others, and some performers I will certainly look into further. So as a taster it does the job. What I would say is that some of the earlier albums in this series might prove better , 2010-11 or 12 I think may be double or triple CDs.

Whatever style of folk they have it here from acoustic to 'rock' such as 'Bellowhead'. A wonderful modern folk taster and a truly good buy. Three CDs with something for everyone. Each CD keeps the quality.

Purchased at the same time as 'I Just Love Folk' as it was at a good price for a taster of more recent folk artists. Lots of good tracks and more than worth the money.

Bought as a present for colleague in the secret Santa. She's very pleased with the gift and couldn't believe it was this year's compilation. One happy person for the long drive home for Christmas.
