I don't usually bother with music whilst wild camping but as i've got a seven day trip planned for June i thought i might load the phone with a few tunes for those quieter moments.
I'm not really a music person so i'm struggling a bit to find anything decent to listen to, so far all i've managed is two Eddie Vedder albums and a couple of Kate Rusby tracks, i'm trying to keep it acoustic btw.
Any suggestions similar to the above. ?
Include a little history in your walks. Pecsaetan - Ancient Derbyshire, Staffordshire and South Yorkshire - http://pecsaetan.weebly.com/
Oh chips the request was acoustic. Then indeed listen Neil unplugged
Not really acoustic but somewhat different and easy on the mind is This Mortal Coil music.
I'm with Rob above, especially Beethoven's 6th in the wilderness.
Twigs, I guess you have Nick Drake stuff, I find it a bit too much after a bit. I like the Led Zeppelin acoustic album (iii). Try "Follow Me Down" by Sarah Jarosz.
When I used to take music Mike Hardings Footloose in the Himalya was a favourite for the tent
You can't go wrong with a bit of Pokey La farge and the South City Three:
Thanks everyone, i now have a huge 12 song playlist.
Keep em coming.
I like the Moldau by Smetana: it is based on a running river. Events include rapids and a hunt passing nearby. This link is by the City of Prague Symphony Orchestra YOU TUBE
The one I have is by LSO, slightly slower and better for it.
Don't see how it sits between Eddie Vedder and Kate Rusby though.
Ditch the rest: make it all up with classical!
I have a Sansa Fuze MP3 player, it has 1 4Gb internal memory & a 8 Gb memory card. I listen to radio comedies and a mix of light rock, jazz & classical. I generally put some BBC R4 documentaries on it too. Saves the phone batteries and is very small and light. I bought my girlfriend a Sansa Ciip, it is even smaller and lighter but with more memory (8 Gb).
Worth investing in I think, it saves your phone battery and will probably produce a better quality sound (I have bose earplugs with mine).
