Description
Although he was labeled a folk singer, Richard Dyer-Bennet thought of himself as a minstrel or troubadour and performed at Carnegie Hall. With impeccable intonation and subtle guitar accompaniment, he performs "The Bailiff's Daughter of Islington," "Woman! Go Home!," "When Cockleshells Turn Silverbells," "The Garden Where the Praties Grow," "Who Killed Cock Robin?," "Veillée de Noël," "Two Maidens Went Milking," "Corn Rigs Are Bonnie," and "Eggs and Marrowbone."

"An important figure in the folk revival, particularly in the '40s and '50s when he was a regular at the Village Vanguard, toured extensively … and released a number of critically acclaimed albums…. He possessed a clear, high tenor voice, a true gift for interpretation, and a deep affinity with and respect for his material….. He was a tireless song collector with a passion for obscure ballads, and nearly all those on Volume 2 (1956) will be new to most listeners."—Sing Out!

"He was the first to score the breakthrough of a major solo concert, filling Town Hall in 1944 and returning often for many years…. His repertory of 600 songs … encompassed diverse ditties, English sea chanteys, French love ballads, spirituals, cowboy music and Swedish shepherd tunes…. [Critics] were struck by the clarity of his diction, the precision of his phrasing and the delicacy and feeling of his delivery."—NYTimes

The folk music archives that form the wellspring of these Smithsonian recordings are truly incomparable. Encompassing a wide variety of styles, they reflect the heart, soul, and backbone of the American experience as well as indigenous music from around the world. Folkways' impeccable sound and documentation does these artists proud, setting their work off as the treasure it is.
