Folk singer songwriter Maz O’Connor releases the first single from her much hailed album This Willowed Light accompanied by a beautiful animated video by fellow folk star Marry Waterson. I asked Maz to tell me a bit more about the project.
I found the song in The Full English Collection, which was being put online by the English Folk Dance and Song Society for public access while I was a BBC Performing Arts Fund Fellow with them last year. It's an English version of the well-known American folk song The Silver Dagger, but I'd never heard anyone sing these particular words before. I've given the words a new tune, too.
