VA - Spain In My Heart (Songs of the Spanish Civil War)


A collection of songs to pluck at the heart strings of all those with a sense of history, especially the history of the anti-fascist stugggle in the 30's and even more so of the part played in that struggle by the progressive men and women of Spain and their allies in the International Brigades.
 
The album collects seventeen recordings of old and new songs performed by iconic figures of American folk, Latin and country: Pete Seeger, Arlo Guthrie, John McCutcheon, the bluegrass singer and fiddler Laurie Lewis, Aoife Clancy (former member of Cherish the Ladies), Shay Black (The Black Family), Quetzal, the Mexican Lila Downs, Guardabarranco (the duo of siblings Katia Cardenal of Nicaragua and Salvador), Eliseo Parra, Uxía ...
