On Wednesday 26 April Concerts South West presents June Tabor in Concert...|
From the first, June Tabor demonstrated a mature command of traditional and contemporary songs alike, singing them, often unaccompanied, with remarkable individuality and expressiveness. The emotions and meanings she uncovers in the old songs give them a new resonance that has caught the imagination of audiences far beyond the folk scene.
However, to describe her as simply a folk singer is to ignore the achievement of becoming one of our finest interpreters of songs of almost any kind. The starting point is often traditional material, but her individual treatment shows how she makes any song her own with her thoughtful, personal story-telling. ‘Singer of the Year’ 2003 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
Starting at 8.00pm Tickets are available from the Box Office 01326 211222 priced at £13.50 in Advance or £16 on the Door
