Anne Briggs - Forgotten but not Gone
Anne Briggs was active in the UK folk scene around the mid-60s to early 70s. Despite stepping back from music since that time, she continues to be something of a minor cult figure. Her vulnerable, gentle vocals have found favour in Japan in recent years, and there have been much-anticipated re-issues of her difficult-to-get-hold-of recordings amongst those who are aware. Let's hope momentum can build thanks to the wonders of the web.
This tune is a lovely example of her sound, its freshness compares admirably against much of the new acoustic and contemporary folk around. Nice to listen to with a plate of cheese and onion and a dimpled mug of Ruddles County.
