“Then there’s that encore! We’d have been content with “Who Knows Where The Time Goes”, but instead that became the centrepiece of a trio of Sandy’s finest - an absolute hat-trick of consummate performance. The best encore I’ve seen in years!”
(The Living Tradition)
Fotheringay MkII members Sally Barker (The Poozies, BBCTV’s “The Voice”) and guitarist PJ Wright (TradArrr, The Dylan Project) are joined by frequent Fairport Convention guest Anna Ryder, multi-instrumentalist Marion Fleetwood (voice, fiddles guitars) and the rhythm section of Mat Davies and drummer Mark Stevens from folk-rock legends Little Johnny England to form The Sandy Denny Project.
Sandy Denny’s remarkable writing is approached not as a tribute band, slavishly copying the records, but as a tribute in its best sense - an interpretation of Sandy’s wonderful work.
With every year, Sandy’s reputation continues to grow in stature as a songwriter and interpreter of traditional material, and the six musicians in the band who share an impressive folk rock pedigree are each at the very top of their musical game.
And they smile a lot!
