Sandy is to be inducted to The BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Hall of Fame in April!

The Hall of Fame exists to recognise the special contribution of an individual to the world of folk music – someone whose impact and influence has had a lasting impression.

Sandy has been chosen by the BBC this year, “Sandy Denny is considered to be a founder of the British folk rock movement and perhaps its most important female singer, songwriter and personality.

Over a brief career spanning just 13 years, Denny left an extensive legacy. She is remembered for her pivotal involvement with the British folk rock scene, where, as a member of Fairport Convention, she moved the band away from west coast American cover versions and into performing traditional material and original compositions.

Sandy Denny is also remembered as a composer, most notably on her solo albums which represent her claim to be Britain’s finest female singer-songwriter. Her composition, “Who Knows Where the Time Goes”, is now regarded as a classic and has been recorded by artists as diverse as Judy Collins, Nina Simone and Cat Power. Famous also for her exceptional voice, it has been suggested that her effortless and smooth vocal delivery still sets the standard for many of today’s female folk-based singers.”

I’ve Always Kept A Unicorn

Drawing together stripped down arrangements of demos, live, radio and TV recordings she performed solo, with the Strawbs, Fairport Convention, Fotheringay and The Bunch, “I’ve Always Kept A Unicorn” is the best album that the late Sandy Denny never made! Order your copy here:
