English folk music by WildGoose Records
WildGoose specialises in traditional folk music, particularly that of England. Doug. Bailey, who founded the label and studio in the 1980s, has been involved in English music for over 30 years as a performer, a producer and an engineer.
Most people are familiar with Irish and Scottish music, but far less aware of English music. Sadly, some think that there is no English traditional music. We at WildGoose wish to do what we can to alter this situation.
Our recordings cover a great range of dance, vocal and choral music, both old and new, with a strong bias toward the traditional. Many albums are representative of a particular region of England. There are also albums of early music, Playford, lively village band music and some works recently composed in the traditional style.
During the last few years, the label has taken a few forays into the traditional music of other countries but English music is still the mainstay of WildGoose.
