Before starting this thread, noted numerous hits on Angela Carter (1940-1992) in other Mudcat threads, worth taking a look.
If you are interested in folk tales/fables a collection of her reimaging of the Brothers Grimm will be found in the collection THE BLOODY CHAMBER.
Years ago I read and enjoyed much of her fiction (short stories and novels), missed her non-fiction work (reviews of books records concerts & film , essays etc.. Recently came upon a collection of
the non-fiction work:
SHAKING A LEG Collected Journalism and Writings (VINTAGE pb)

Among them, the following music related essays should interest MUDCAT folks:
Now is the Time for Singing (Nonesuch Magazine 1964)
Bob Dylan on Tour (London Magazine, 1966)
A Busker - Retired (New Society, 1967)
The Good Old Songs (New Society, 1968)

Does anyone know if the 1st item above is available online ?? I would
like to be able to point other friends to this.

Perhaps other readers of Carter can suggest other of her music related
essays ??

Thanks, Thomas.

Can't say that I've ever heard of her, but I found a couple of Angela Carter Websites that look interesting:

Can somebody enlighten us about Angela Carter?

Joe, the second website has a page Angela Carter and Folk music.

Amd a few of my Topic albums, two EPs by Peggy Seeger and an LP by Louis Killen, have sleeve notes written by Angela Carter.

Angela was married to Paul Carter, a folk enthusiast, collector (of the Willett family for example) and recording engineer. They ran a folk club together , if I remember correctly. Based in Bristol then.

I read a lot of her work in the 70s and 80s. Inventive use of folklore ideas. But I never realized she had any connection with folk music. Any of her books are well worth reading.
