Thread Name: June Tabor – where to start ??
Subject: June Tabor – where to start ??

I'd heard good things about her, so I watched her on Jools Holland, was fascinated & a bit scared by the 1st song she did, which means it was a good song.

Bought 'Ragged Kingdom' on the strength of that, very glad I did – probably because Oysterband remind me a lot of Steeleye Span.

June is good unaccompanied; I luv '(When I was No But) Sweet 16' Funnily enough, one track reminded me of Gary Moore, who I also luv) so picked up 'Freedom & Rain' too. Also like Silly Sisters.

I much prefer the more trad, nastier sort of folk (with a bit of rock in it!) -- nothing fazes me when it comes to that –- so what's worth getting by her?
