The annual BBC Folk Awards once again spawned a great compilation in 2007 of all the nominated artists, 22 in total. This three disc set includes a bonus CD, which has six songs from all of the finalists for the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards. Every year, these awards and albums prove that folk music, both traditional and contemporary, isn't dead.

There's some lovely stuff to be heard here, and as well as lots of good voices, there are contributions for some multi-talented musicians who can play a wide variety of instruments, ranging from the harp to fiddle, guitar to brass, to keyboard to pipes. As always, with just about every compilation, whatever the musical genre, there is always going to be stuff on the CDs that won't be for every listener, and some haven't made their way into my iTunes library. Nevertheless, if you do enjoy folk music, like myself, you'll probably find more of what you do like, than what you don't like on this collection.

The booklet contains mini-biographies on every artist who is featured on the first two albums.

22 tracks featuring all of the nominated artists for the 2007 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards plus a 6-track bonus live CD (24 minutes) featuring all the finalists of the Young Folk Awards.

For me, the absolute highlight of this collection is Tim Van Eyken's powerful new arrangement of Barleycorn. To hear this excellent track in its entirety go to Tim's website.

Other good songs (4 stars on my ipod) are:
Disc 1:

Roots by Show of Hands
Daisy by Karine Polwart
Flighty Girls... by Shona Kipling et al
Biodh An Deoch... by Julie Fowlis
Love Henry by Martin Simpson
Locks and Bolts by Nancy Kerr et al

Disc 2:

Stella's welcome to Kamloops... by John McCusker
Billy don't you weep for me by Nic Jones
Wayside by Chris Thile
Silver Dagger by The Devil's Interval

Disc 3:
Billy don't you weep for me (live) by Ruth Notman et al
Vestapol (live) by Wilber

All the rest of the tracks I rate at 3 stars.

There are certainly no dire tracks.

Good broad sample of new folk, great value - a few tracks are dire but then one man's great is another's awful. 3 cds, well 2 and a half, good value
