Cool Ethereal Folk: VASHTI BUNYAN

VASHTI BUNYAN is an english folk singer with an ethereal voice. She recorded quite a bit in the late 60's but without getting the fame she deserved.

Recently a collection of her work brought new ears to her timeless classics, and she has reemerged in response to all the cult attention.

Listen to this first song and see if you aren't hooked...


Vashti Bunyan - "Train Song" (1966)

And here she is now, still with us, showing us how it's done right. (This 1963 song must be the basis for "Train Song" later.)
