Area of Expertise : Brit Folk
English Folk music was pretty much rescued from extinction in the modern era by a dedicated group of ‘folk song collectors’ lead by Cecil Sharp and his followers (Ralph Vaughen Williams who wrote the famous English Folk Song Suite included). Earn your AE Brit Folk patch by demonstrating three arrangements of traditional British Folk Songs. You may create your own tabs for these, or find tabs out there on the internet. Here are some resources you may find these resources useful:
