UK, 1972, Scottish folk / Scots song

Ray FisherThe Bonny Birdy: It’s hard to believe Fisher is backed on this album by such big names as Martin Carthy, because Ray, as lead, fills every corner of this music with her expressive vocals. I’m not much of a drone fan, but I like the hints at folk droning on this album. Of course, we’re talking Child Ballads here, so the subject matter is full of love and death.
