Folk Rising 2

Blatant commercial plug really; for Folk Rising 2, a two CD sampler from those nice people at Proper, featuring lots of people who've been nominated for the Horizon award for emerging folk singers or who ought to have been. I like sampler CDs because they come at a great price; in this case £6 for 23 tracks. Of the 23 up and coming artists, I've seen 9 live (some, like Mawkin, I've been following for years, and others, like Tom Kitching & Gren Bartley, I heard for the first time just recently). And of the nine I've heard, I like eight (no, never telling!). So that's a pretty good hit rate. Out on July 7 but using the Snazzy Intarwebs Proper have given me a widget that lets you hear all the tracks. Luckily, it doesn't autoplay; if you want to hear the music you'll have to hit the play button.
