Songs from the Past Into the Future by Derek Gifford

Summary

Derek has been singing for over 35 years and is well known as an excellent solo performer throughout the U.K.

Some of the songs on the album are unaccompanied but most are accompanied by Derek on guitar or bowed psaltery with the support of concertina, cello, fiddle and oboe. Chorus songs are one of Derek's specialities and the album has some great chorus singing.

Apart from his love of folk song Derek is also a keen conservationist and many of the songs on this album reflect these interests giving it a strong 'green' theme.
