Thread Name: Norma Waterson - information wanted
Subject: RE: Norma Waterson
The first time I heard Norma Waterson was on the Radio a few years ago. To me her voice is beautiful and sensual. Friends of mine have listened to the CDs (and liked them a lot) and asked why they have never heard of her before, one of my friends is 62 and hadn't heard Norma before!
These were Normas solo CD's which are not traditional folk, one has a song by Freddy Mercury
Anyway Challis perhaps you should start another thread to discuss what you wish to talk about as the title of this one may be excluding many people who may want to join in; you have also hijacked it from its original point (Norma worship - we are not worthy). Just what is your main frustration, that folk music is too stuck in the past (ie where are the new folk songs) or that only trained singers should sing?
