The Hobbledoy love folksingers Anne Briggs, Shirley Collins, and Sandy Denny of course, but there is only one June Tabor. On this clip from a 1970s British TV program called “Fanfare” she sings unaccompanied “While Gatekeepers Lie Sleeping” (delivering a classic eye-roll after her introduction). The interview following is also a treat.

Two masters of British Folk Music perform “Flash Company” from their LP A Cut Above, 1980.
Who wore their boots better, June or Martin?
