Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Sounds Good -

THE or­gan­is­ers of the Ten­ter­den Folk Fes­ti­val are set to release their third com­pi­la­tion of folk songs from and about Kent. Fes­ti­val or­gan­iser Alan Cas­tle, pic­tured left, and his mu­si­cian brother Pete have pro­duced the CD, Oys­ter Girls and Hovel­ling Boys. Alan Cas­tle ex­plained: “Like the pre­vi­ous two, Keys of Can­ter­bury and Ap­ples, Cher­ries, Hops and Women, it con­tains a mix­ture of very old tra­di­tional songs and some re­cently com­posed songs. “Much of the ma­te­rial on the pre­vi­ous al­bums was about specif­i­cally Ken­tish sub­jects, this time there is a pre­dom­i­nance of gen­eral folk songs and bal­lads which are known through­out the English speak­ing world but in ver­sions which were col­lected in Kent.” Per­form­ers on the CD in­clude Pete Cas­tle, Dave Ma­son, Andy Turner and Mar­ian But­ton.

The CD is priced £10 (£12 plus p&p) and is avail­able at­te­cas­ or from Alan Cas­tle at Folk Sports, 15 Rep­ton Manor Road, Ash­ford TN23 3HA or on
