Dark Brittanica / :John Barleycorn Reborn: - Rebirth

Various Artists

2xCD Jewel-Box (SR150CD) - COLD SPRING

The double-edged nature of the harvest season can be both a blessing and a burden; a vision of superabundant excess than can’t possibly be consumed before it rots.
Our pre-industrial forebears expended considerable time and energy on conserving some of autumn’s bounty against the scarcity of winter…
Yet somehow, people would survive to till their fields again the following spring.
The compilers of the first ‘John Barleycorn Reborn’ compilation, released in 2007, faced a similar embarrassment of riches - a testament both to English folk heritage and the health of the contemporary folk music scene.
So here we have the second crop from that original sowing, 33 tracks from the cream of current dark British Folk music.
