DVD Blurb

Sandy Denny - Under Review is a documentary film reviewing the music and career of arguably Britain's finest ever female vocalist and songwriter. Although Sandy Denny is revered deeply amongst fans of folk music and the “singer-songwriter” genre, she has never reveived the universal acclaim so long overdue and so often heaped on those of far lesser talent. This program attempts to redress this imbalance and reveal why she remains such an inspiration to so many.

Features

  • Extracts from musical performances of Sandy Denny, see below,
  • Interviews with and comment from musicians Martin Carthy, Gerry Conway, Dave Mattacks, John Renbourn, and Dave Swarbrick,
  • Reviews and comments from biographer Patrick Humphries, folk journalist Colin Irwin, and Uncut magazine editor, Nigel Williamson
