"Top British Female Singer Songwriter?"

‘All the songs are Carolanne’s, and she sings them in a quivering, sensuous voice slightly reminiscent of Buffy Saint Marie, but unquestionably her own … There are several contenders for the title of Top British Female Singer songwriter. Some stick with Sandy Denny…. My money’s on Carolanne Pegg. With this album, she’s outdistanced them all’ Charles Shaar Murray, New Musical Express, 1973.

"Superb album from Carolanne"

‘a superb album brimming with mystical imagery and ancient lore. Without forsaking her folk credentials, Carolanne, with the notable assistance of Albert Lee, creates a rockier sound, contrasting with harmonium-led, brooding pieces like “The Sapphire”. If you like the solo work of Sonja Kristina, you’ll feel well disposed to this, their voices being very much alike. Similarly, their subject matter covers love and the supernatural, and this would sit nicely in Kate Bush’s personal LP collection!’ – Trevor King, Record Collector 237, May 1999.

Born in Nottingham, Carole initially worked in folk clubs with her former husband as 'Bob and Carole Pegg'. She co-founded and became lead singer and fiddler in the legendary folk-rock band 'Mr Fox', then released a critically acclaimed singer-songwriter album as 'Carolanne Pegg'. Now, after living and working withmusicians and spiritual specialists in that region for more than 20 years, she's back - with a new adventure - The Goshawk Project - that seeks to reconcile those experiences with her own English traditional music background and songwriting.
