Thread Name: Did June Tabor record Icarus? (by Anne Lister)
Subject: RE: Did June Tabor record Icarus?
Just caught up with this thread - sorry, was away!

As far as I know, June Tabor has never recorded my song "Icarus". There is a persistent myth around though that says she has - if so, I've never seen or heard a copy of it! Nor have I ever heard her singing it, although I've been told she has done. There are numerous artists out there who have recorded it, however, including Maggie Holland, Robin Laing, Gerry Hallom and Martin Simpson, and Martin was performing it (I believe) while he was still gigging with June. Which might explain some of the confusion. Among others who have certainly performed it (but not necessarily recorded it) are Archie Fisher and Garnet Rogers.

Always happy to hear of more, though ...

Anne (yes, Lister)
