...Sings Old Airs - Susan Reed
Susan Reed was a politically-minded New York folkie who found some degree of fame in the 40s and 50s, even acting on Broadway and in Hollywood, before pretty much being written out of the history books and going on to run her own handicraft shop. A few songs about leprechauns and gypsies might require something of a leap of faith, but her harp playing is beautiful, her version of She Moved Through the Fair as good as you'll hear, and do check out the vocal round of Come Follow (multi-tracked?) for a Fuzzy Felt folk delight.
