Dorset, My Dorset

Dorset, My Dorset


The Yetties grew up, and still live, in Dorset. Their roots are in the villages of Yetminster and Thornford and they came from the last generation of youngsters who automatically turned out at harvest time to help the farmers stook the corn, load the trailers and build the ricks before combine harvesters appeared and 'sociable jobs' on the farms disappeared.

This recording is unashamedly biased towards Dorset and life in the countryside. Every track has either Dorset or rural connections. Thats doesn't mean that every song is of the cow pat variety though. You will find a wide variety of material on 'Dorset, My Dorset'.
