Claire M Who is your favorite band ??? (71* d) RE: Who is your favorite band ??? 04 Aug 13


Hiya,

Somebody was going to take me to the Cambs Folk Fest but I knew any sort of festival would be a problem, so never bothered making a habit of checking who was on.

Who should be on this year but Steeleye! My love for them knows no bounds; my love of any sort of fantasy, old fashioned language & the Latin fetish I seem to have stems from them; & my favourite legend would have to be the one of the Nokken/the Sirens.

Caught up via iPlayer; they played 'I Shall Wear Midnight' will never forget hearing that for the 1st time. I cried so much my face was as red as my dress & all blotchy. Peter Knight was looking right at me as he changed I to [b]WE[/b]. Couldn't stay off the loo for about a week beforehand (I never can anyway but this was even worse) The woman who came w/ me to see Maddy Prior on her own was so bored she kept playing w/ her phone

As for the Quartet originally went for Martin Simpson, he was good but MQ were as Steeleye-ish as could be, the women even sounded similar to Maddy, the sort of high, loud singing she does; I was disappointed when they left for Simpson to come on! Their version of 'Bright Morning Star' had me sobbing & shaking (had heard it by Steeleye 1st)
