Album: Georgia Ruth, Week of Pines (Gwymon)

Eisteddfod-reared singer-harpist Georgia Ruth Williams was raised bilingually in Aberystwyth, as far into Wales as you can get without falling off the edge.

The combination of gender and instrument will ensure Newsom comparisons, but with her clear, pure folk voice and intimately personal lyrics, she's closer to the spirit of Judy Collins or Mary Hopkin. Give or take the odd motorik backbeat, Week of Pines could have been made in 1968. In the loveliest possible way.
