I Don't Know If I Believe in God, But I Saw Sandy Denny Sing Once

With Fairport Convention, 1975.

Words fail me.

She could sing Beowulf and give me chills.

Sandy's the best.

Alison Krauss reminds me of her a bit. Not stylistically, or even tonally. They both have a clarity and purity to their voice that could only come from God!

I definitely don't believe in a guy with a beard in a big chair watching over things. And I never saw Sandy Denny perform. The closest I came was Steeleye Span in '72 opening for Jethro Tull touring "A Passion Play".
Maddy Prior filled the San Diego Sports Arena with her voice.

I saw the same '72 tour at the L.A. Forum. The Span was magnificent!
