I hope Carole is enjoying her holiday. Meanwhile, thanks to tfd for suggesting today’s contender, Maggie Holland. Born in Hampshire, she became involved in the 1960s folk club scene and has played in numerous bands and collaborated with many other artists. Here she is in this week’s youtube playlist, singing A Place Called England, which won her a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award as Best Song of 1999:
Now it’s over to you to expand the family tree by adding more of her music / collaborations / influences / songs that have been covered by others to the above youtube playlist, if you can. I can’t get any of the collaborative links to work this week (although I’ve done exactly the same as last week), so if all else fails just tell me what you want to add to the list and I’ll do it myself (sigh). It’s too hot for a beer but I’m having one anyway. There. That’s better.
