The Imagined Village

Various Artists


Released 15 October 2007

If you think you know about English folk music, think again! The Imagined Village project, the brainchild of producer and musician Simon Emmerson, has recast age-old traditions in the shape of the twenty-first century. A daring mix of ancient and modern, The Imagined Village fuses fiddles and squeezebox with dub beats and sitars.

…folk is moving more and more out of the shadows.
It’s mischievous and tender, wry and wise, sad and surreal, but a folk that could only have been made in the 21st century.
