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

Eskil Romme - Himmerlandsmelodier

The CD features accordion player Karen Tweed (UK), the piano player Peter Rosendal (DK) and the violinist Ditte Fromseier Mortensen (DK).

The Vineyard present six new melodies by Morten Alfred Høirup and three old ballads, played by folk-musicians from USA, Finland and Denmark. The very unusual and old Danish instruments used on many of the tracks give you a new version of this old European music as it might have sounded before it developed into what we today know as Danish traditional Folk music. Morten Alfred has created a name for himself throughout Scandinavia as a young rythm guitarist within a variety of genres: Danish, Celtic, American, French-Canadian and contemporary folk music.

Fenja Menja - Katten i Saekken
The affinity of the Celtic and Scandinavian musical traditions has frequently been demonstrated, not least by the transnational band Swåp. Danish quintet Fenja Menja also take up this theme on their second release, uneven not so much in musicianship as in aspiration. Is this band, named for twin ogresses of legend, a world-jazz act, a rock band, or new Scandinavian traditionalists?... Katten i Sækken" may leave you scratching your head a bit over placing its musical intent, but most of it will leave you in little doubt as to its success." - Jim Foley, RootsWorld

La Musgana - Temas Profanos
Spain's La Musgaña plays traditional music of Central Spain, where Moroccans and Celts, Europeans and Africans have all left their mark, on traditional instruments including gaita (bagpipes), wooden flutes and hurdy-gurdy, and more contemporary instruments like fiddle, guitar, accordion. Dance tunes and love songs, ritual music and village celebrations, lullabies all find their way into the repetoire of this important ensemble. Based in Madrid and together for twenty years, La Musgaña ("the water rat") still features original members Jaime Muñoz and Carlos Beceiro, with newer members Jorge Arribas on accordion and Diego Galáz on violin.

Uhrbrand-Lydom-Cahill - Spring, with Mats Vingin and Peter Rosendal
Originally formed as a trio in 1998. Peter Uhrbrand, Sonnich Lydom and Sèamus Cahill has now been joined by two outstanding jazz musicians Mads Vinding (bass) and Peter Rosendal (piano) in what can only be described as a rare meeting of musical genres, that of folk and jazz. In a sense Spring is not only a meeting of different musical styles, but also a meeting of the great traditions of Nordic and Celtic music. One of the band members is an Irishman now settled in Denmark and so it seemed natural that songs from the Irish tradition should also be included on this CD. ULC's choice of material blends beautifully together.

Susan McKeown and Lorin Sklamberg - Saints and Tzadiks: Yiddish and Irish Songs
Vocalists Susan McKeown and Lorin Sklamberg (of the Klezmatics) present a fascinating album combining Yiddish and Irish songs culled from rare archive material and old recordings, with themes common to the Jewish and Irish traditions: love, death, betrothal, betrayal and the demon drink. The bulk of the Jewish material is drawn from the Ruth Rubin Archive at the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research, where Sklamberg serves as Sound Archivist. The Irish songs come from both the popular and the ancient Gaelic sean nós traditions. Listen

Tradish - Roots and Shoots
Their eclectic approach to Irish music has sent them across Europe touring in recent years. "Roots and Shoots" consists of traditional and new compositions that draw on the energy that flows from the roots of Irish music. It starts with a crazy trip through Galway, and ends up going out to wherever Irish music is loved and nurtured. As part of a living tradition, Tradish are interested in exploring ways to connect the old and the new, the past and the present, respecting the roots yet keeping the music fresh and alive. Every member of Tradish has spent the best part of their lives playing everything from small pub sessions to concert and festival performances, giving Tradish the ability to not only satisfy the hardcore trad. crowd, but also to reach out to a wider audience who might not otherwise listen to traditional music. John Pilkington: vocals, guitar, bouzouki, stepping; Louise Ring Vangsgaard: fiddle, viola, vocals; Brian Woetmann: bodhrán, percussion, vocals, stepping
