Astrolabio - Spirit Folet [Italy 1978] @224


Vinyl Album (very rare!)

It's Piedmontese folk with evident celtic influences. It's very proficiently played and the instrumentation is rich (accordion, guitar, cello, mandolin, harp, bagpipes, bombard, different kind of flutes). A subtle veil of melancholy is the most peculiar trait of the nine tracks composing the album
