Rhodesia Was... 'Folk Country'


Rhodesia was always a land full of surprises. The determination and good nature of the people shone like a beacon in those often dark days and tough times. Their typical optimism and depth of musical talent eventual found its way onto the 'small screen' through a series of folk music programmes hosted by local folk legend, Clem Tholet. Sheila Taylor, Trevor White, Dave Warmsley, Bruce Pentrieth, Iris Jones and many others joined Clem to bring us a rare selection of old favourites and original songs. This musical compilation is in small tribute to the musicians and loyal supporters of the folk music scene in Rhodesia in the late 1970s.
