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

Bellowhead - Hedonism
Formed in 2004 by duo John Spiers (melodeon, concertina) and Jon Boden (vocals, fiddle), this 11-piece big band fuses a wide range of individual musical talent into something unique and truly uplifting. With fellow band-members Pete Flood (percussion); Justin Thurgur (trombone); Brendan Kelly (saxophone, bass clarinet); Andy Mellon (trumpet); Paul Sartin (oboe, fiddle); Rachael McShane (cello, fiddle); Ed Neuhauser (helicon, tuba); Benji Kirkpatrick (guitar, mandolin, bouzouki) and Sam Sweeney (fiddle, pipes) Bellowhead honor centuries of English musical tradition while at the same time constantly pressing forward into the future. On this 2010 studio album the music is a delirious amalgam of schooled musicianship and anarchic abandon.

Habadekuk - Hopsadaddy
The idea of fusing a brass section to a folk group is hardly a new one - think New Orleans street bands, Balkan brass, Hazmat Modine's NY harmonica and tuba blues, Sweden's Filarfolket or British folk-brassers Bellowhead. But this is as fine an example as any of them, the Danish roots flowing naturally into not only a traditional dance band sound, but also into rock and jazz and R&B. Modern dance music from ancient roots? Their motto is "We blow you away." Indeed. Highly Recommended!
