Playlist: Forgotten England

By Tim Woodall

A Songlines playlist for Apple Music featuring Eliza Carthy, Sam Lee, Bellowhead and The Unthanks


English folk music draws from centuries of folklore and stories, from mystical deeply rural tales to tragic tales of love and loss. Here some of the best English folk artists of the new century tell tales from older times: evocative and powerful story-songs that take the listener into a long-past and distant land.
