cd cover A Banda Das Crechas
ABDC (Fol Musica)
cdRoots Code: boa-df047

Andrew Cronshaw writes in fRoots: 'For decades A Casa das Crechas at Via Sacra 3 in Santiago de Compostela has been the best known session-bar in Galicia’s folk music revival, the most likely place to run into and play with musicians from Spain’s green north-west and sometimes from abroad. On May 31st 2009 a bunch of those who were around of its long-time and more occasional denizens, some widely-known, some not, gathered there to record the music they like and has united them over the years. Played and sung with a nice balance of democratic directedness of arrangement and non-studio informality and on a shifting cast of instruments including fiddle, gaita, flutes, sax, accordion, guitar, banjolin and the exuberant rattle-patter of pandeireta, the material is mostly Galician – xota, muiñeira, pasodoble, marcha procesional, rumba, and songs including a spirited Meu Cabaliño and the Cuban-emigration song Unha Noite Na Eira Do Trigo - but also includes tunes that have drifted in from the rest of the European folk revival, from Sweden, Ireland and the Balkans, learnt from the likes of Väsen, JPP and Andy Irvine, and been enwrapped in a Galician embrace.'

Please note!
Most 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. We 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.
