Sally Barker - Maid In England

Patriotic Pun

This is a solid folk-infused album by the singer from The Poozies, who I don't know at all, and as far as I can make out, has also appeared on The Voice, but I wouldn't hold that against her. She certainly possesses a classic folk voice in its clarity and rich tone, and there is excellent instrumental and other vocal support on all tracks which apparently were some years in the making, and which have been re-mastered for this latest release. The title track is an upbeat and celebratory song with both a feminist and patriotic playfulness, evidenced obviously through the lyrics and also the punning title.
