Traditional music from West Virginia and eastern Kentucky
Foreign Soil consists of 11 traditional fiddletunes, banjotunes and songs from West Virginia and eastern Kentucky. All performed solo by Danish oldtime music lover Tobias Enevoldsen.
The package contains a professionally replicated CD and a small 16 page booklet with notes on the tunes and music.
The packaging is handmade from recycled paper and cardboard. To protect the case from wear it’s put in a thin plastic sleeve (there goes the 100% eco-friendly packaging).

I have made some more detailed liner notes on this site. They include more information on the sources, music links, video, photos and links to recommended reading- and listening materials.
The extended liner notes are found here.

fRoots (British): ” [Thumbs up] Traditional music from West Virginia and eastern Kentucky, performed entirely solo by excellent Danish singer, fiddler and banjo player. Recycled and home-made packaging includes a well-researched and informative sixteen-page booklet. This is a real labour of love.” (View)
