Thread Name: Anne Briggs biography?
Subject: RE: Anne Briggs Bio...?
Hello InOBU,

I keep on running into Anne Briggs too, figuratively speaking - on some June Tabor sleevenotes -
as the subject of 'Beeswing' (haven't seen the thread you speak of) - then again, right
on my doorstep in the Dublin folk scene of the 60s (the Jimmy Moynihan bit). The latter I picked up from Andy Irvine's
site where he has a nicely written mini-biography. Anne appears in it singing with them in the
Abbey Tavern, Howth - to the complete indifference of the late 60s rabble. Here's the link Andy Irvine
Apart from Anne, it's interesting reading - where we learn yet another reason to be grateful for Peter Sellar's
existence - he gave Andy Irvine his first guitar!!
Would love to hear some recordings of Anne - but not likely to run into any in the near future :-<
