“Blow the Wind Southerly” a traditional Northumbrian folk song, appeared on a link on my Spotify list and I was immediately taken back to Sunday nights; family supper listening to 100 best tunes with Alan Keith. Kathleen Ferrier was a favourite especially when singing this song.
As a romantic teenager, music lover and choir member I longed to have a voice like hers with the skill and artistic ability to bring such mood into her singing.
A more recent by Laura Wright:
Bryn Terfel has included it on his Homeward Bound CD. Lovely voice but I struggle with sentiment hearing this in male voice.
You tube has many more versions. Which one is your favourite? Join the conversations and connect.
