Subject: I need a new favorite female vocalist.
From: GUEST,Azoic
Date: 19 Aug 11 - 12:47 AM

I'd like to expand my horizons and so I am asking: who is your favorite female vocalist.People that I have enjoyed in the past (and still listen to) are Marianne Faithful, Karan Casey, Karrin Allyson, Niamh Parsons, Marta Sebesteyn, Nico, Lulu, Edith Piaf, Marina Topferova, Joni Mitchell, Sally Dworsky, Linda Thompson, Kate Rusby, Linda Ronstadt. Is there someone else that I should audition? Please save me from ennui?

Hard to pick an all time favourite as there are so many really but I'd put in a vote for some of Eva Cassidy's work. Too bad she died before she really had the opportunity to take off!

How could I forget Kathleen MacInnes? She sings in Gaelic, but what a great voice. You really have to check her out - Scottish gaelic singer of the year a wee while back. You don't have to understand what she's singing about - the voice does it all. She has videos on you-tube.

Karan Casey and June Tabor set the bar pretty high but of those already mentioned already I'll reiterate Cara Dillon and Anne Briggs (thanks Morris-ey)but also raise you Norma Waterson, Sally Barker and the wonderful Thea Gilmore (more mainstream folk/rock but
a superb voice).

Since I've just noted her absence here, in my Mudcat thread about a Song of the Day series at my own site, I'd say Eliza Carthy on her day should be in there with a shout. Linda Thompson, too, at her height.

And while I know it's deeply unfashionable to say so, I still love Joan Baez's voice.

But we are spoilt for choice. Looking back over this thread, I can say without even checking that Mary Black, Cara Dillon, June Tabor, Dolores Keane, Chris While and, of course, Sandy Denny have all appeared in my selections, along with a few of the others mentioned.

Aoife O'Donovan (vocalist for Crooked Still in addition to her other projects and solo ventures) is one of my favourite female singers. I've seen her sing live many times and she is wonderful. A great talent who can work her magic on traditional songs and inventive cover versions as well as writing some superb songs herself. There are tons of clips out there in the ether but here's a sampling...

Aoife sings Harvest Moon

Aoife sings her own song Lay My Burden Down

Aoife sings Wind and Rain

I second Mary Dillon of Deanta; sadly, she appears to have retired from performing.

With Eddi reader a close second, my all-time favorite, heartstopping, heartbreaking voice is that of Karen Matheson. There is no instrument like hers.

A more recent one.

My favourite is Madeleine Peyroux, just for the recordings. She used to be jazz/blues/swing, but has lately turned to recording her own songs, which IMO isn't so good. Performers cover covers because they are the best songs, even in their opinions.
Julie London if you like steamy late-night jazz. The late Dusty Springfield if you like CW just a touch raucous. Melody Gardot has as good a voice as I've heard.
