Song Of The Day: Fairport Convention – “Who Knows Where The Time Goes” (1969)



Let’s take a minute to remember the late great Sandy Denny, who was born on this day in 1947. She was the driving force behind the pioneers of the British wing of the late-Sixties Folk Rock movement, Fairport Convention. She was the first to champion the kind of traditional English folk music that would eventually be embraced big time by bands like Led Zep and Genesis. On top of all that she wrote beautiful songs like this one, and she had an amazing, ethereal voice that would be a source of inspiration for many female vocalists to come. Sandy Denny died tragically at age 31 after falling down some stairs, leaving the rest of us to wonder what wonderful music she might have made had she lived a long full life. She is still very much missed.
