I'm surprised nobody seems to have mentioned that June Tabor was on Radio 4 this morning. I expect the programme will be available for a week as a 'Listen again', and a shortened version will be on this evening between 9.30 and 10 pm UK time. With luck it will include the bit with her in it.

Thanks for the "heads up", Topsie!

It was Midweek. You can Listen Again here: The main conversation with June starts at ~33 min 20 sec in; starting off (after an intro by Libby Purvis) with June singing "The Reaper" solo & a capella... absolutely stunning.

Here's the Midweek blurb about June:
"June Tabor is widely recognised as one of Britain's leading folk singers. Her style straddles folk and jazz and she often sings unaccompanied. At last year's Radio 2 Folk Awards she won Singer of the Year and, with the Oysterband, she also picked up best group and best album. Her latest band and album - both called Quercus - feature Iain Bellamy on saxophone and Huw Warren on piano. Quercus is released on ECM records and the band are performing at the Salisbury Festival."

Thanks for that Topsie...being a Radio 6 listener I missed that. I'll listen on catch up later.

June is a new discovery for me...(all folk music is to be fair!)but I love her deep voice which is similar to mine. I am hoping to learn some of her songs for my folk club as i think I will be able to give them a good shot.

I hope Aunty apologises for mis-spelling Iain Ballamy's name. We've got tickets for Quercus' gig in Salisbury, I suspect it won't be to the taste of folk 'purists'.
