Lydia McCauley
ForeignLander


Lydia McCauley documented folk music at the prestigious Appalachian Music Archive in Berea, Kentucky in the early 80s and studied with some of the best folk musicians in the Appalachian region.  Lydia returns to her roots in this, her fifth album, a collection of innovatively arranged pieces from 17-20th Century Appalachia, beautifully performed by McCauley and her touring ensemble, along with special guests.  While careful to preserve Appalachian traditions, she creates a fresh and contemporary sound that pleases both traditional and progressive music audiences.
