Folk Music Recordings from Forest Tracks, UK

 
   
     
The Team Making The Tracks
   
   
  ANDY JACKSON : A founder member back in 1970. Andy was a well known and popular figure around Southampton's folk clubs and festivals across the South. A BBC sound engineer, he did most of Forest Tracks' recording up until his move to South Wales. He became very much part of the South Wales folk scene, where he ran the award winning Miskin Folk Festival each Easter. Andy has moved back to live on the Isle of Wight and is now actively involved in the Island's folkscene. 

PAUL MARSH: First involved in 1990 when Forest Tracks issued some of Paul's field recordings of traditional singers and musicians. Well known as a singer, musician and local song collector, his recording skills have involved him in many projects including Topic Records' 'Voice of the People' series. The driving force behind Forest Tracks' revival, Paul's role is the overall production side of the CDs – recording, mastering, artwork etc. He is also our webmaster.

RON COE: Our latest recruit to the Forest Tracks team, Ron, joined in 2000 – the start of the revived Forest Tracks.
A singer, musician and familiar face on the South's Morris dancing scene, Ron has been a member of Winchester Morris for over forty years. He brings his accounting, financial and budgeting skills to Forest Tracks and drawing on this experience Ron tries his best to keep us in 'cheque'.

ALL OF OUR EXPERTISE IS GIVEN VOLUNTARILY –
ANY 'PROFIT' MADE IS PLOUGHED BACK INTO THE NEXT PROJECT.

THIS IS HOW WE'VE BEEN ABLE TO BRING YOU RECORDINGS OF GREAT LOCAL PERFORMERS
WHO REALLY DESERVE TO BE MORE WIDELY KNOWN BUT WHO MAY NOT BE
TRULY COMMERCIAL.
