English Folk Music in Hungary. This is Andy Rouse’s story and the story of his band Simply English. Andy is an Englishman who first came to Hungary in 1975 – to the English department at the Teacher’s Training College in Pécs – as an exchange student from Exeter’s St Luke College of Education. In 1979 he was invited back to the same institutution in Pécs to teach English. In the meantime Andy has always been a musician. His trio „Simply English” has been playing English folk music in Hungary for 2 decades. Simply English has a new CD out called “SONGS FROM THE CARAVAN”.
