This CD by David Jones and Bill Shute is a rich and soulful collection of eighteen ballads, work songs, and sea shanties from the British Isles and North America.
When people ask me what's at the top of my family music list, I always say Widdecombe Fair. This is one of the CDs that gave me a real sense of how broad and exciting the scope of all-ages music could be. When it was first released in 1993 it won a Parents Choice Gold award and was recommended by Booklist and the School Library Journal.
Festival Five Records' reissued version of Widdecombe Fair is fully remastered and repackaged with lyrics and rare Andy Warhol artwork.
Parents' Choice Gold award winner.
