various / bfi - Here's A Health To The Barley Mow

Amazing collection of poetic documentaries, long un-seen television reports and rare silent film footage revealing just how powerful and enduring the folk traditions of Great Britain are. From the sexy, savage' Cornish May Day rites of Alan Lomax's Oss Oss Wee Oss, to Jeremy Deller and Alan Kane's footage of ferociously fought traditional football; from children's games in London's bombed East End to intricate sword and step dances - this double-disc set of newly remastered films is accompanied by an illustrated 58-page booklet including detailed notes and essays by folk historians. The silent films feature innovative fiddle and melodeon accompaniments by contemporary folk musicians.
