This combination is well represented here, on the band's first album.

Black Velvet
This band gave a performance at Kibbutz Adamit in northern Israel in the early '80s. I was there and have been a fan ever since.

Exciting music
I think they are a very fine group of musicians. They have a very clean sound, very professional.

They are not a Big name, but I don't see why, they are so tasteful.

This is for people who really love folk music and not pop/folk
I really love this kind of folk music. It is really from the people and not from the realm of selling alot of records and being famous.
The music holds a special kind of beauty because of that reason.
