• sharron kraus The Fox's Wedding (CD, £8.25)

    label: Durtro Jnana

    Exquisite second album by this wonderful singer. She conjures up visions of Karen Dalton, Shirley Collins, Sandy Denny, Judy Dyble and even early Joni. Kraus is a singer/musician/songwriter who creates music rooted in the folk traditions of England and Appalachia. Her work is characterised by soil-rich vocals, haunting banjo, fine acoustic guitar and visionary wordcraft. Her songs are populated by a carnival array of fatally charismatic characters, telling tales of enslavement, perversion, incest, obsession, love and death. Sharron’s live performances are stark, compelling and delicate. As with her music, her performance continues the tradition of the balladeer. Tracklisting: 01. Brigid 02. Green man 03.
