As Open as the Sky: A concert to celebrate the music of Sian Daniels (1950-1996)
At Omnibus 1 Clapham Common Northside SW4 OQW
On Saturday 17th October
Throughout her career, whether working with Ralph McTell, Kokomo, Poison Girls, Rory McLeod or Wolfie Witcher (to name but a few) Sian could always sing the heart into a song. This event celebrated her achievements both as a song writer and musician. Rory McLeod led a group of specially invited musicians in performing material by Sian as well as songs that she performed as a singer and collaborator.
This event was a fitting celebration of a very fine artist and an opportunity to bring her music to a new audience.
Sian recorded this track in 1980. It shows the influence of her time in the States, but the wit of lines like ‘You know me I’ve got friends/from Paris to Southend-go to Paris any day’ is pure Sian!
This is track 3 from the newly released album: ‘As open as the Sky: The Songs of Sian Daniels’
