Sussex Folk Songs and Ballads

Performed by Tony Wales who was born and raised in Sussex, this album recorded in 1957 reflects his love for and interest in local Sussex folk songs. Collected by Wales himself, the songs presented here with guitar accompaniment embody in some capacity "something of the characteristics of the Sussex countryman." Liner notes include detailed song information and lyrics.
