Karine Polwart

Karine Polwart is a Scottish artist who combines traditional folk music styles with modern themes. I’ve been cruising around the internet looking for pieces to include here and I haven’t found a song yet that I didn’t like. Her voice is pure and her emotions deep. The music she creates has feeling, and often deep social meaning.

Polwart’s debut album FAULTLINES won three awards at the 2005 BBC Folk Awards, including Best Album. Its follow up, SCRIBBLED IN CHALK (2006), contained “Daisy”, a gentle word to the wise to one of life’s givers and truth-tellers who can’t quite comprehend that “there are people in this world who don’t think like you do”. The song won Polwart another BBC Folk Award for Best Original Song in 2007.
