JANE TURRIFF is one of Scotland's Iegendary traditional singers. First recorded in 1955 by Hamish Henderson, she has gained a reputation on the folk scene for her passionate ballad style, coupled with a powerful and beautifully controlled voice. A native of the North East, Jane was born in 1915 and now lives in Mintlaw. The album brings together the best of many archive recordings of Jane singing, both unaccompanied and with harmonium and accordion, and is issued as volume two of the North East Tradition series in association with Aberdeenshire Council.
