About Sandy Denny

British vocalist Sandy Denny had a brief stint with the Strawbs, but first came to prominence in the late '60s as the frontwoman for pioneering U.K. folk-rockers Fairport Convention. Her controlled, crystal-clear voice was never short of riveting, with an undeniable spiritual bearing. Denny's own songs draw from her British heritage as well as American folk and rock. After departing Fairport Convention, she formed the similar-sounding Fotheringay, which released one album before Denny embarked on a rewarding solo career. Sadly, she died at the tender age of 31 in a tragic accident, leaving a marvelous musical legacy behind. ~ Rovi Staff
