Song Folk Art

A trip with Ranagri through twelve traditional songs

"Every now and again," Beverley Folk Club observed, "the folk music world needs a gentle kick up the backside. And we should be eternally grateful that the four members of Ranagri have slipped into their best Doc Martins to do just that."

Barbara Allen c Eva Dziedzic de AguirreBut to do "just that", say Ranagri, "you need to delve deeply into the world of folk – to savour the soul of the folk song – before daring to add any new dimensions."  The history, the geography, the characters, the lyrics, the instrumentation... the whole emotional atmosphere. Then, whilst searching and researching, there came a surprise mingling and melding of visible art to their musical interpretations.

High Germany c Amy MalkinThis is the story of that quest: an inspiring trip through twelve traditional folk songs – with the images created by twelve additional artists – which led to the production of their album ‘Tradition’. Two of the artworks that accompany the book are shown here you can visit all the artists and artworks for the 'Tradition' project and Song Folk Art by clicking here.
