My Love Lies Drowned in the Windy Lowlands…

She left home young, called by the songs of the hills. She learned them well, and sang them better, and joined the tour, and roamed.

The doors of fame opened, but she remained among the trees and the streams, and there she remains to this day.

All my respect and appreciation to Anne Briggs.

Alan Hall presented a piece with the BBC Radio 4 interviewing Anne and showcasing some of her music. “Hall interviewed her at her home in the west of Scotland, where she lives alongside nature and beside running water, which seem to provide all the music she needs. The last time she sang was when she put her infant grandson in a sling and took him for a walk by the river. ‘It seemed to soothe him,’ she says.”
