Caroline Herring's a new country singer/songwriter with folk and blue grass influences. She has a pleasant soft style with intelligent lyrics. She has two albums out - the second just came out this week. I'm including links (hope they work) to her website and to sites that will enable you to listen to song clips. She's one of those singers that I had to hear just once to get forever hooked. My favorite songs of hers are Wise Woman and Whippoorwill.

Last night at a Sydney folk club I heard local artists The Fagans sing Caroline Herring's setting of Song of the Wandering Aengus, from her 2009 album, Golden Apples of the Sun. Many tracks from that and other Herring albums are up on YouTube.

Just listened to her version of Long Black Veil and can't help wonderng why she sings it to such an inferior melody than the one normally used. To my ear she has ruined a good song.

I enjoyed her singing when i heard her in Shrewsbury a few months ago.
She will be back in the UK performing, to be part again of the Cecil Sharp project at Shrewsbury Folk Festival, at the end of August

Here is a clip of the song Gerry mentioned, The Song of the Wandering Aengus. I've just ordered the CD and look forward to hearing this and the other songs on it. Donovan has done a version of this song too, original lyrics by WB Yeats.

Here she is doing When I lay my burden down..

She has a very expressive, flexible voice, and great timing, I love her singing.

Caroline is a wonderful talent -- I have recently heard her in a small listening room -- first time since her "coming out" at the Folk Alliance here in Florida about 11 years ago. Personally, I like her non-traditional approach to "Long Black Veil"...

Without aiming to be a smart-ass or start another long thread about what is and isn't traditional. I believe that this song was written well within living memory as a result of a challenge to write a country song and as far as I know has normally been sung to the tune used at the time. Or is that just another folk tale?

The beauty is in the ear of the beholder, no? Isn't the folk "process" about adapting, transforming, and re-imagining? I believe both realities to equally valid.
