Album: Marry Waterson & Oliver Knight, The Days that Shaped Me (One Little Indian)
Sunday 27 March 2011
The newest fold in the Waterson dynasty finds the late Lal's children exploring their place in the world with a suite of melancholy, poetic songs: unadorned, sometimes courtly, always hard to read.
Marry has her mother's vocal tone and inflection, especially in minor keys. Knight is the sort of guitarist singers dream of, utterly sufficient and no more. Eliza Carthy's in there, as is Kathryn Williams. Has the potential to be a lifelong companion. It's that good.
