Linde Nijland sings Sandy Denny

and some of her own work

'Linde Nijland sings Sandy Denny' is an inspiring and beautiful homage by singer Linde Nijland to one of the greatest female folk singers ever. Sandy Denny made a legendary, lasting impression in the '60 and 70's with groups like Fairport Convention, Fotheringay and The Strawbs as well as with her breathtaking solo-recordings. She died young, unexpectedly, at the age of 31. Linde Nijland is internationally known as part of the harmony-singing duo Ygdrassil and one of Holland's most highly regarded folk musicians. Linde grew up listening to Sandy Denny's music and has recorded the songs by her favourite singer. Live, Linde creates an intimate atmosphere with a strong remembrance of the originals, while at the same time adding the freshness of her own crystal clear voice and style. Instrumentally Linde is assisted by an excellent musician Bert Ridderbos on guitars, cittern and accordion.
