Drumshanty Lyr Req: What a Voice (from Lizzie Higgins) (29) RE: Lyr Req: Blackbird/What a Voice 13 Dec 05

During the recent documentary about the gypsy travellers that was shown on BBC tv, Martin Taylor told Sheila Stewart that when he hears her sing, he's not listening to her voice, he's listening to history. That is exactly how I feel about the few recordings of Jeannie Robertson and Lzzie Higgins that I have; they take my breath away too, and this song in particular. I wish I could have heard these women singing in person.

There is also a very young Scottish singer called Siobhan Miller who has been doing an excellent and powerful version of "What a Voice". It's good to know these songs are still being loved and sung.
