GUEST,MadAuntieCat Singers and songs which stunned me . (162* d) RE: Singers and songs which stunned me . 07 Jun 10

'The Easter Tree', at the Plume of Feathers Folk Festival last year (unsure of the singer but he had a Big Bushy that narrows it down..)

'Coal Hole Cavalry' as sung by Jackie Phillips has me in tears without fail.

'Tom Of Bedlam', to the point that I've made it one of my signature tunes.

'Helas Outremer' (a lament), sung by Paescod.

'It was a Lover' and his dad sung that to me from when I was ver' young.

'Ratcatcher's Daughter'- again the Paescod version. Energetic and fun and clever.

The last one I can only describe- by a group of Irish Re-enactors at an event somewhere in the south of England about 13 years ago...a girl with a voice like a ripe peach sung a haunting counterpoint to the rhythmic bass chanting of the men in her group . The men were repeating goddess names over and over like a dirge, and her voice...all rather like port and stilton...
