Thread Name: June Tabor Discussion
Subject: RE: June Tabor Discussion
My memories go back slightly further even than Kitty's, to 1966 or -67 (whenever June arrived in Oxford). In those days her songs were mostly or entirely traditional and without accompaniment, though I think she has said herself that the lack of accompaniment was dictated by circumstance rather than choice.

I have mixed feelings about her much wider range of material and the amount of accompaniment in later years. Some of it works for me, but a lot doesn't. But then that's a matter of taste, not good v. bad. I do agree that she is a great singer.

Oh and BTW, to correct a reference above, her one-time flatmate's name is Clive Woolf, not Wolff.
