Lal Waterson

Lal Waterson wrote some beautiful, insightful songs, and sang them with a straightforward, forceful voice. She was first heard with her siblings as a member of The Watersons, an important influence in the revival of English folk music in the early '60s. Lal went on to create songs that occupy a unique territory between folk tradition, personal perspective, and adventurous musicality. Host David Garland presents songs from Lal Waterson's albums Bright Phoebus, A Bed of Roses, and Once In a Blue Moon, as well as the recent tribute album, Migrating Bird. Migrating Bird
