Maybe I'll post a song every day for the rest of the week (I did used to be a DJ you know - maybe this is just a different outlet for that occupation). Today's song is one that was mentioned in the comments last week when we were talking about clouds. It is sung here by one of English folk's finest singers June Tabor. Tabor isn't one of the young, new singers of the latest folk invasion (and boy, are there a lot of them!). Instead she is very much old guard but unlike some of the latter (with their wobbly, for me, almost painful voices) Tabor has a beautiful, deep, strong voice with a wide range. She's really something special (though I suspect she'd hate to read that...I get the impression she's all about the music and the tradition and not particularly self-interested). I've yet to see her live (details of current tour dates and so on are here) but I own a couple of her cds and they are all fantastic. Anyway, see what you think of this:
The song was written by Bill Caddick (his website is here).
Now, what song for tomorrow?
