Folk music is of all times and all places. As soon as people learned to beat the rhythm and could give voice to a song, folk music was there. Folk music is also often played together, so it is perfect for an ensemble such as a guitar duo.
People like to play something and listen to what they know. Therefore, there is a huge repertoire of folk song arrangements. Even “professional” composers such as John Duarte (1919 – 2004) and Miguel Llobet (1878 – 1938) engaged in folk song arrangements and thus delivered equally challenging “classical” music.
In this section you will find solo settings of folk music from England, Scotland, Ireland, Holland, the United States and South America.
