Subject: RE: The Lady: A Homage to Sandy Denny
"I do know of at least one woman singer in Liverpool whose voice provokes the same emotional response in me that Sandy's used to (and still does) but she's (currently) realtively unknown and certainly not part of the Radio 2-Folk Roots world from whom they seem to have recruited the performers in this show. So, inevitably, she wasn't used. One day, perhaps."
Chris, are you going to name this singer? Clearly we should be looking out for her if she's that good.
I would hardly describe PP Arnold or Joan Wasser as belonging to the "Radio 2-Folk Roots world". One of the strengths of this show was the eclecticism of the cast list. It wasn't about "Tonight, Matthew, I'm going to be Sandy Denny"; it was about celebrating Sandy's legacy as a songwriter.
