Silly Sisters


Steeleye Span’s Maddy Prior and folk diva June Tabor teamed up in 1976 for the very first Silly Sisters record. It was greater than a 10 years before they implemented it up with another, but both recordings include a beautiful melding of Prior’s very clear, brassy soprano with Tabor’s darker shades.
