Anne Briggs – Willie O Winsbury

Anne Briggs was a huge star on the English folk music scene in the sixties and early seventies, and then dropped out and never really performed very much again. She had listened to the old folk singers – the people who had learned their songs from their parents and grandparents and so on, back through the generations – and she tried to model her style on theirs.

Most of her early songs are sung unaccompanied, but I think this one is accompanied by a bouzouki.
