Top Ten Female Singers from the U.K.
I'll freely admit to being swayed by a great live concert, and as such I've not been able to stop playing Swing Out Sister discs and videos since last Monday's show. Watching the videos again today, appreciating what a great singer Corinne Drewery is, I got the notion to formulate a top ten list of female singers from the U.K. Here it is.
- Corinne Drewery (Swing Out Sister)
- Julia Fordham
- Sharleen Spiteri (Texas)
- Tanita Tikaram
- Andrea Corr (the Corrs)
- Eddi Reader
- Tina Dico (Zero 7)
Here are some more excellent singers from the U.K. Please add any that I might have overlooked and if you are so inclined, please post a comment with your own top ten.
Sophie Barker (Zero 7)
Maire Brennan (Clannad)
Sandy Denny (Fairport Convention)
Lisa Hannigan (Damien Rice)
Annie Haslam (Renaissance, now transplanted to Doylestown, PA)
Chrissie Hynde (another transplant)
Karen Matheson (Capercaillie)
Mairead Ni Mhoanaigh (Altan)
Maddy Prior (Steeleye Span)
Sia (Furler, Zero 7)
