Preston Woodward

Medieval balladeer

From the July, 2005 issue

When you listen to Preston Woodward, you quickly get the feeling that listeners should be sitting around him in a circle, outside in the dark woods, drinking ale from clay mugs and throwing logs on a fire. I guess you could call him a folksinger, since he performs acoustic music drawn from the lives of ordinary people. But these people lived hundreds of years ago, and the songs are medieval ballads, sea chanteys, and eighteenth-century folk tunes.
