Hiya, this is "Sinéad" (I decided to sign up).

After all the recent discussion about weak voices from females in folk music and who has a voice of distinction, I was wondering which female folk singers you would recommend and why. The only rule is that they have to be new to the scene (let's say, the last 10 years) or unknown.

For me, it has to be Jackie Oates, Bill Jones and Nancy Kerr (okay, so she's not new or THAT unknown but she's rarely mentioned).
