Our daughter, Anna, had seen and really liked the British folk/ Americana group Bear’s Den at their Edmonton Folk Music Festival appearance in 2015. Their song ‘Agape’ appeared on our year end ‘Best Folk and Acoustic Sessions’ list in that year. And with a busy recording and performance career, new songs made the year end list in 2016, 2019 and last year.

Here is the original song that brought them to the attention of folk and Americana listeners world-wide.

And in the COVID era they produced one of the most moving and also, well mixed, audience collaboration videos, which made our most recent list.

Soon we’ll be preparing our year end list of acoustic and folk sessions for 2021. In anticipation, we look back at some past years’ selections.
