Bonnie Dobson was recently presented the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame Award for her timeless and enduring song Morning Dew.
The award was presented by her old friend Gordon Lighfoot, some 57 years after Bonnie's debut performance of the song at the inaugural Mariposa Folk Festival. Today it's her most well-recognized song, and it was set on course at that debut to became an international standard. Few others in this year's audience were likely to remember that gig more than half a century ago, but as the reviews all stated, it sounded every bit as fresh and relevant in 2018 as it did that summer's day in 1961.
THE LORDS OF THYME
The Lords Of Thyme are traditionally English in the same way that Pentangle or Fotheringay were traditionally English, but also in the same way that Julian Cope undoubtedly is. A hazy, blissed out, ancient and modern country of the strangest imaginations.
Joe Woolley, Tali Trow, and Pat Kenneally first played together as part of Michael Tyack’s compellingly odd ensemble Circulus before forming The Lords Of Thyme with Michelle Griffiths of the progressive Morris dance side The Belles Of London City.

Jack Sharp is the guitarist and singer with psych rock band Wolf People. In his years with the band, Jack has developed a keen side interest in finding, singing and interpreting folk songs from his home of Bedfordshire, inspired by the music of Nic Jones, Lal Waterson and Peter Bellamy.
