Vashti Bunyan’s delicate 1970 release is wonderful, her soft British voice buoyed by lightly-strummed guitar. She wrote the music for this album while travelling in a gypsy cart.
Sometimes folk music can really throw you through a loop with how traditional it is. Like this song, Lily Pond, is really a variation on Ah! vous dirai-je, Maman, the lullaby behind practically everything you sung as a kid. It’s got one hell of a WIkipedia journey attacked to it, although for some reason Wikipedia redirects it to Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. You’d think it’d go the other way.
