GUEST,Anne Croucher Review: Steeleye Span (20) RE: Review: Steeleye Span 20 May 04

I sing folk - the cds in the car are a modern scottish cd about whisky, two Status Quos, Star trek movie music, favourite overtures from light opera, and Phantom of the Opera.

I like Queen, and I have various cds and tapes and even vinyl records of all sorts of music which has taken my fancy over the years - but I don't have music on in the house all that often because I sing.

I think I sing Tam Linn once in awhile just to make sure that the little grey cells are still in working order - I have never sung it in public in case people get bored - I suspect that I would find it a little tedious to listen to.

Folk music is what I do not what I want to experience from an audience point of view. I have probably missed more concerts than most, being at Sidmouth just about every year for 30 years and not going to see any 'names' must be fairly unusual. It is a bit odd now I think about it but I was always too busy or too tired with all the singing and dancing.

In my youth I dropped out of Portsmouth poly and bought a knitting machine to make tank tops and fairisle jumpers to sell, - I got quite a few orders from people at the Railway folk club.

Sometimes, you know, I get this uneasy feeling of being responsible for more than I realise.
