Here are some 'earthier' albums you can check out on the internet:  Pass the Jug Round (trad songs from Cumberland recorded in the 1950s);  Good Order! Ladies and Gentlemen please  - trad singing from The Eel's Foot in Eastbridge Suffok  (recorded in the 1930s and 40s);Old Swan Band (Morris and English country dancing) This band started in the '70s and may still be playing for dances.  The album I have includes 2 stories by a couple of old timers with an accent so thick you could cut it with a froe.  You may also be interested in the English Folk Dance and Song Society.  This website links to the Ralph Vaughn Williams library.
