She Moved Through the Fair

Fairport Convention recorded “She Moved Through the Fair” in 1968, with the legendary Sandy Denny contributing the vocals. Irish traveller Margaret Barry recorded a great version earlier, though she herself had learned it from a vinyl recording made by John McCormack in 1941. Other singers who sang it in the 1950s and the 1960s included Paddy Tunney, Dominic Behan and Anne Briggs, who performs the song in the clip below.
