Hiya, this is "Sinéad" (I decided to sign up).

After all the recent discussion about weak voices from females in folk music and who has a voice of distinction, I was wondering which female folk singers you would recommend and why. The only rule is that they have to be new to the scene (let's say, the last 10 years) or unknown.

For me, it has to be Jackie Oates, Bill Jones and Nancy Kerr (okay, so she's not new or THAT unknown but she's rarely mentioned).

Sinéad.

My little niece. Who claims she got interested in it from hearing her old uncle and aunt singing around campfires and such when she was a child.

Fiona Simpson. Back on the 'folk scene' after some years doing family and church things. Fabulous voice with a range few can equal.

Dick - Is your question on sex changes was just so you could appear as an upcoming female artist - Forget it! :-)

"Have we forgotten Kate Rusby"
Well outside the 10 year rule and she's isn't "upcoming" any more...

I saw the thread title, then the post that added the "folk" requirement. Until it being limited to folk, I was going to suggest Gin Wigmore. Alas...

Priscilla Herdman a fine, fine folk singer from Upstate, NY. She has a lovely voice! Sometimes reminds me a little of early Judy Collins.

She is on tour in California right now and I had the opportunity to see in concert in Southern, Califoria this past weekend.
She will have some radio spots in Northern, California this week and if you just go to Priscilla Herdman's web site you will be able to find the folk radio programs she will be on. She will also have three concerts in Northern, California in Santa Cruz, Berkeley and Davis.

Her concert in Southern, California was wonderful and I loved her songs, especially her cover of Don McClean's, "Vincent" and a very moving version of, "Waltzing Matilda."

Beth Gibbins has a pretty good voice when she lets it go:

Beth Gibbins with Fairport

She was just 15 when she sang that with Fairport. Not sure she can be classed as "folk" though: Tiny Tin Lady is moving further away from the genre now.

Katie Doherty's voice can be a bit "breathy", but I still like it:

Katie Doherty "Bridges"

By the way, not only are False Hare great singers, they also run the Kit and Cutter Folk Club in London. What's not to like?

Thanks guys, some excellent ones :)



Herga Kitty, you are quite right! I just thought I'd put them on the list as they are very rarely mentioned in threads and definitely deserve to be, I think. Plus, I don't think we've heard the last of Bill Jones. I have a feeling that if she releases another album, it'll be a big success. I'm not sure why, I just do? We'll see!

Maz O'Conner too, and Sophy Blundell of Wheeler Street.
