The folk music of England is a tradition-based music, which has existed since the later medieval period. It is often contrasted with courtly, classical and later commercial music. Folk music has been preserved and transmitted orally, through print and later through recordings. The term is used to refer to English traditional music and music composed, or delivered, in a traditional style. English folk music has produced or contributed to several important musical genres, including sea shanties , jigs , hornpipes and dance music , such as that used for Morris dancing. It can be seen as having distinct regional and local variations in content and style, particularly in areas more removed from the cultural and political centres of the English state, as in Northumbria , or the West Country. Cultural interchange and processes of migration mean that English folk music, although in many ways distinctive, has particularly interacted with the music of Scotland. It has also interacted with other musical traditions, particularly classical and rock music , influencing musical styles and producing musical fusions , such as British folk rock , folk punk and folk metal. There remains a flourishing sub-culture of English folk music, which continues to influence other genres and occasionally gains mainstream attention. In the strictest sense, English folk music has existed since the arrival of the Anglo-Saxon people in Britain after CE.

I Gave My Love a Cherry
At some point in the past a bloke called George supposedly killed a dragon, which is - understandably - a big deal. And despite suspicions this may or may not have actually happened in what is modern day Turkey, the English have adopted dear George as their patron saint. So, with St. George's day arriving, we're celebrating some of the nation's most enduring musical heritage with out English Folk Songs playlist. The English folk tradition stretches beyond written history, with the earliest songs passed between sailors and travellers to while away long hours of tedium. England, as the seafaring giants they once were, produced some of the longest lasting sea shanties the folk tradition has known. Songs like ' Bold Nelson's Praise ' laud naval successes England once knew, while ' Leave Her Johnny ' tells of the tough lot that is a sailor's life.

18th Century Music
Linda Crampton has loved music since childhood. She plays the piano and recorder, sings, and listens to classical, folk, and early music. Folk songs are an important part of our culture. They are often very enjoyable to hear and can transmit facts and ideas to listeners. Traditional folk songs generally come from a culture that no longer exists, but they are still interesting. They allow us to glimpse a time that has passed but that may still influence us. The traditional songs that I've chosen for this article are four of my personal favourites.
Click on the link or the drop-down menu above to take a listen. When we first came to traditional folk music, we stood at the foot of the mountain and wondered at the sheer size of what loomed ahead. You might find it by chance — a centuries-old song that grabs you and sticks with you and makes you wonder what else might be out there — or you might find that someone offers you a leg-up. After all, each have tales about some chap in some pub somewhere who can play the hind legs off all the donkeys, but chose not to make a career out of it, or someone legendary who passed away years ago but, boy, you shoulda heard them play the spoons. We hope you find it useful. To get the latest from the series, make sure you sign up to our mailing list.
