Full Description

Looking for the perfect addition to a folk lovers' CD collection? Looking to gorge yourself with a feast for the ears? Desperate to fill your brain and your heart and maybe even your fingertips with the songs of our collective culture?

AND you want to do it in one fell swoop?

Brothers and sisters, look no further.

We have packaged together all FOUR volumes of the critically acclaimed series THE OLD TOWN SCHOOL OF FOLK MUSIC SONGBOOK into one powerhouse bundle for one low price!

85 songs over four discs, with three detailed booklets explaining the story behind the songs and why they have resonated for decades, sometimes centuries.

These songs have thrived in the folk traditions of America for a reason. They are tough and long lasting but malleable enough to be adapted and re-invented easily. Their essence lies in their distillation of the varieties and vagaries of the human experience, topics that never go out of style. They are strong witnesses to what we all have in common; longings and desires, good times and bad, loved ones gone and true love found.

Besides, since no one’s teaching this stuff in schools anymore, it’s been left up to the Old Town School of Folk Music to keep our vast musical heritage alive for all of us. That’s no small feat in this time of short attention spans and whiz-bang computer programs. Pull up a chair and join the circle.

For more information on the performers and descriptions of the CDs, click on the individual releases.  Suffice to say, the breadth of talent, guest stars, and classic material is a aural banquet.
