Here's something else I got ages ago, and only got round to listening to today!
Valeryan occasionally comes to the Wednesday night sessions at Baskerville Hall, and she does have a musical background. She was in the group The Settlers, who sang the theme song to Follyfoot in the 1970s, The Lightning Tree.
And more recently, she's made a CD called Rolling Road.
A couple of the songs on the album are ones she's sung at the Baskie - Betrayed by a Kiss, Never Shared the Wine and The Circle Line, for instance, though at the Baskie she plays the guitar as well as singing, and on the CD she has a variety of accompaniment, including backing vocals. Some are songs she's written herself, and she also does a good version of the traditional She Moved Through the Fair, and Sandy Denny's Who Knows Where the Time Goes.
