Going For A Song: ‘Leftover Wine’

Melanie – Leftover Wine

It was the start of Broadstairs Folk Week on Friday. I usually make it down for the weekend but I didn’t manage to this year. I’m going down tomorrow for the day now. Merlyn Driver – who if you still haven’t sought out even after my recommendation you really should – is playing a couple of shows.

I’m choosing this song by Melanie to mark the start of the festival. I’ve somehow never heard anything by Melanie before. And though I’m not sure where I first heard ‘Leftover Wine’ I’m thankful I did. This starts off folky and ends up something and somewhere quite different.
