Subject: RE: Guardian on 'Shuffle Folk', 'Weirdlore'
Voices I respect are mature warm and rich and convey depth of emotion.
Definitely includes Anne Briggs, Shirley Collins June Tabor, Maddy Prior, Carolanne Pegg...

... even Vashti Bunyan at the outer limits of tolerable song performance.....

But too many of the current wave of public school hippy 'faerie princesses'
just suffocate listeners with over-cloying 'A level Performance Arts' fey pleasantness..
