Sharp Practice by Mary Humphreys & Anahata

Summary

An assortment of previously unrecorded material from the English folk tradition, much of it previously unrecorded, in a dazzling variety of arrangements. There are neglected gems from Cecil Sharps collections, alternative versions of old favorites and a number of tunes, some written by friends and others much older, that simply havent had the exposure they deserve. The arrangements range from unaccompanied singing to complex multitracked extravaganzas with melodeons, concertinas, banjo, cello and piano played by Mary and Anahata, together with contributions on fiddle, flute and recorder from Dave and Gina Holland.
