NAOMI BEDFORD & PAUL SIMMONDS
The Appalachia ballad form has been liberally sprinkled throughout Naomi Bedford and Paul Simmonds’ recordings to date. Now they have recorded a full set. This is no museum piece. In keeping with the folk tradition, the songs have been revised and re-invigorated, staying true to the heart of the stories. With new arrangements and the power of Bedford’s evocative voice, these legendary songs continue their transatlantic voyage.
