Young British songwriter Laura Marling creates engrossing songs colored with shades of anger, forthrightness and joy. She sings them with an agile, emotional voice, accompanying herself on guitar. Here’s a rebroadcast of Laura’s Spinning On Air appearance back in February 2008, when this composer of worldly songs was only 17 years old. Laura Marling joins host David Garland to talk about and perform her songs. She’s back in New York this week for performances at Glasslands Gallery, June 16, and Mercury Lounge, June 18.
