Steve Shaw 10 of the Most Disturbing Folk Songs - BBC (79* d) RE: 10 of the Most Disturbing Folk Songs - BBC 07 Oct 21

Well as a long-time Shirley Collins aficionado, I'd nominate two of her songs. There's Polly Vaughan, which I have on a superb album called Fountains Of Snow. Then there's The Murder of Maria Marten, on that greatest of English folk-rock albums, No Roses.

Then there's The Banks Of Red Roses by De Dannan, sung by Johnny Moynihan.

I've just realised that I've picked three songs about the murder of women... Is that apposite for the modern era, I have to ask myself...
