Please note!
Most of our CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. I guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
Thanks- Cliff, cdRoots

Afenginn - Opus
With mandolin, violin, clarinet, bass and drums, the Danish ensemble Afenginn have combined their roots in Scandinavian folk with the rhythms of Balkan music. On Opus, they move ever forward, with a bigger, almost orchestral sound, and a big vision for their music that spreads out over two CDs and over 80- minutes of rich, complex music.

Zulya - Tales of Subliming
Somewhat of a departure from Zulya's previous albums, Zulya revisits the fairytales of her childhood, creating her most adventurous work to date. She explains, "Subliming has two meanings; turning from a solid into a gas instantaneously - like dry ice, or becoming finer, purer. There's often a transformation in fairy stories. They are about our journeys to achieve individuality in a symbolic form. Some say each of us identifies with our own fairy story or with a character from one. Tales of Subliming is a collection of vignettes from these characters' lives, little scenes from their journeys." Her vocals float above a musical backdrop that features brass arrangements (courtesy of newest band member Eamon McNelis); a Tom Waits inspired tuned and mallet percussion; plus newer sounds courtesy of percussion loops, manipulated piano tones and hurdy-gurdy. The end result sees Zulya breaking new sonic ground on her 2010 recording.

Oysterband - Meet You There
The 2007 studio album by the Brit folk-rock legends.

Alpcologne - Alpha
Probably a totally new concept to you, as it is to me: 3 alphorns and vocals. The concept of the band arises from its unusual instrumentation. The warm, rich sound of the 4-meter-long traditional instruments encounters the expressiveness and melodic flexibility of the voice. Like the explorers of past centuries, Alpcologne can experiment with its own sound - playing Folk, Ska, Tango, Mambo, Cajun, Bluegrass, and Oriental music; original compositions or reinterpretations. Unique, to say the least!

Transsylvanians - Igen!
They call it 'Hungarian speedfolk' and it does have velocity. This mostly-acoustic ensemble's high-octane brand of folk encompasses the eastern and western with ease and attitude.

various - für José Afonso
Jose Afonso (1929-1987) was a leader in the creation of a political songs (canção de intervenção) movement against the totalitarian regime of Portugal leading up to the 1974 revolution. This collection gathers together an excellent group of artists under the direction of Julio Pereira to pay contemporary tribute to this master of the Portuguese nova canção.
