I am looking for an American folk group that covered the song, "Will Ye Go To Flanders? (during the 1980's). I cannot recall the group but they were an American celtic band and had a lead female singer.
(Not a well known group though).
I have looked on Youtube and found many covers by British singers and groups but could not find the one I am looking for.
I also went to Google and typed in the song title to see if I could find all groups and singers who have ever covered this song. I did find many groups, singers, etc but not the right ones or not an American band. Found mostly artists from Ireland or England.
I think the band was from the mid-west area of America and their version was on a vinyl LP and a cassette that probably came out in the 1980's.
Not on a CD or at least not at the time this group recorded it.
It seemed like the female singer had the last name of "Gee" but don't remember her first name or any of the other members of the band.
She was the only female in the group and it was defintitely an American celtic band.
Hope someone might remember who this group is.

The group is Scartaglen and the singer is Connie Dover. I lived in Kansas City in the 80s and was lucky enough to see/hear them regularly -- they were brilliant!
"Will ye go to Flanders" is on their first (eponymous) album; I used to have it, but gave away all my LPs when I moved to the UK, or I might have been able to help...
If you go to Connie's website (link above) she may well be able to assist.
