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

Boot - Soot
Boot is Hållbus Totte Mattsson (mandora, Baroque lute, from Hedningarna), Ola Bäckström (violin, bouzouki, well known fiddler and member of Swap) and Samuel Andersson (percussion, hurdy-gurdy, octave violin; from Hedningarna, Godrun), three well respected Swedish musicians who are familiar with tradition in a powerful new trio recording.

Folk Music in Sweden series, volume 25 - Folk Music In Transition

Trad.Attack! - Kullakarva - Shimmer Gold
This Estonian band uses tradition as a jumping off point for a vocal infused, high energy folk music that jusmps into the same territory as Hedningarna and Varttina. They take traditional songs – sometimes starting with scratchy recordings of long vanished village voices – and build pulsating rhythmic structures, creating an impressively big sound from acoustic 12-string guitar, drums and an array of whistles, bagpipes and jew’s harps.

Snekka - mot.
The 2004 Kaustinen Folk Music Festival's Ensemble of the Year is on CD at last, in a stirring set of orginal instrumental ballads, jazzy grooves and agressive new-acoustic folk. Tero Hyväluoma (violin), Markus Luomala (accordion), Olli Seikkula (guitar) and Tarmo Anttila (double bass) offer a smart new look at the Suomi roots. Fans of both Maria Kalaniemi and Hedningarna will find common ground.

SANS - Live
SANS is the quartet of multi-instrumentalist Andrew Cronshaw, the great Finnish singer Sanna Kurki-Suonio (of Hedningarna), multi-instrumental reeds player Ian Blake, and Tigran Aleksanyan, Armenian master of his country's heart-rendingly voice-like reed pipe, the duduk. Formed by the musicians who made Cronshaw's most recent CD, The Unbroken Surface of Snow, SANS is an instrumental and vocal combination not found in any other band in the world. The entire program was recorded live in 2013.

Folk Music in Sweden series, volume 3 - Traditional Folk Music
A survey of the whole breadth of Swedish folk music. Many of the recordings were made in the field - from 1942 onwards - in the summer pastures and in the homes of folk musicians and singers. Others reflect the Swedish folk music of the present day, partly in traditional form and partly in the vigorous mixture of musical styles developed during recent years. Among those contributing are Karin Edwards, Pelle Jakobsson, Eric Sahlström, Gössa Anders, Pål Olle, Susanne Rosenberg, Per Gudmundson and Marie Selander as well as folk music groups Norrlåtar, Väsen, Frifot and Hedningarna

Okra Playground - Turmio
Finnish folk music can sound other-worldly. The country's folk-epic, "The Kalevala," is laced with charms and spells, and its impact on Finnish folk culture has been immense. One can hear its echoes in this new recording. Three female vocalists are up-front. Both play the kantele, strung over their shoulders for a twin-stringed attack that any heavy metal band would envy. The men in the band round out the contemporary sound with bass, synth, accordion and percussion. Comparisons to both Värttinä and Hedningarna are inevitable. Okra Playground has an organic, acoustic base, but they frequently add electronic enhancements so that their overall approach appeals to both traditionalists and experimentalists.
