reviews Generosity by Various Artists - Folk for MS

WILD Goose offer a selection of songs from various albums and labels to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Folk for Multiple Sclerosis. Kicking off with Jez Lowe's Taking on Men, which he performed so memorably at Shrewsbury Folk Festival this summer, it includes contributions from the likes of Barry Dransfield, Pete Coe, Roger Watson, Vin Garbutt and Roy Bailey & John Kirkpatrick, along with younger artists like Tanglefoot and the Askew Sisters. All have generously donated their music to this project and performed at the annual concerts that have taken place over the years. Of Welsh interest is Tom & Barbara Brown's Soap Starch Candles and the CD ends with a rousing Parting Glass from the mighty Wilsons.
