Bonnie Dobson has had a remarkable past. Born in Canada, she became one of the stars of the 60s folk scene in the US thanks to her treatment of traditional songs and compositions such as Morning Dew, which the Grateful Dead and Robert Plant covered. Then she moved to Britain, where she began a career in academia and administration. But Dobson has retained a cult following – Jarvis Cocker tempted her out of retirement for his Meltdown festival in 2007 – and now she's back, backed by an inspired band that includes Ben Paley on fiddle and BJ Cole on pedal steel.

Dobson herself disappeared at the height of her budding '60s singer/songwriter career, leaving her life in music to move to London for a newfound love.
