Country of origin:
Type of music generally:
Traditional folk with some electric stuff
This is a side project of Maddy Prior and June Tabor, who both currently have strong solo careers. There is no indication that they have any plans to record new albums together, but no indication that they never will, either.
The Ectophiles' Guide entries for: Maddy Prior, who also sings with Steeleye Span and with Tim Hart and The Carnival Band; June Tabor does solo work and has sung with The Oyster Band.
Steeleye Span, though less electric, more humourous. (Neile)
Arrangements of traditional and neo-traditional songs
The voices of Maddy Prior and June Tabor are a match made in heaven, and these are really fun albums. Great vocals, humourous and tragic songs. (Neile)
Recommended first album:
Either, though Silly Sisters might be slightly livelier than No More to the Dance. (Neile)
