The great voice of English folk music Elvis Costello
Not only one of Britains pre-eminent and impeccable traditional voices, June Tabor is quiet simply one of Britains greatest interpreters of popular song. Tabor has always made consistently exquisite records all graced by a pitch perfect voice that can be dark, romantic, poignant and angry according to the requirements of the song. This elegant introductory selection is drawn from Tabors albums for Topic recorded between her 1976 debut, Airs And Graces and 2011s Ragged Kingdom which found her reuniting on record with the Oysterband for the 1st time in almost 30 years.
A June Tabor album is always an emotional master class which can be warm and alluring or chilling or emotionally intense. She covered Elvis Costellos Shipbuilding on the Ashore album; Costello is one of her biggest fans and wrote two songs especially for her. He described her as the great voice of English folk music but more than that, June Tabor is as fine a vocalist as Britain has produced in any genre.
