Fourth release in our Folk series.

John Barleycorn is king of the fields, gloriously robed in green and crowned with sheaves of golden wheat. He reigns all summer long, but is cut down and deposed at harvest-time, only to be reborn and reinstated the following year. He relies on no arid theory to justify his rule, but only his endless generosity to his subjects. The King is dead – long live the King. 30 tracks from the cream of current dark British Folk music:

CD1: The Hare And The Moon, The Elder Tree, Foxpockets, Venereum Arvum, Mary Jane, Andrew King, Earthling Society, David Kidman, The Rowan Amber Mill, Steve Tyler & Andy Clarke, Xenis Emputae Travelling Band, Sixpenny Wayke, Heed The Thunder, Galley Beggar, and Hills Have Riffs
