Meg Baird – Willow’s Song

We can easily all agree that this is the best known and most widely covered song on Wicker Man soundtrack, right? That meant the mission here was big, super big. As soon as I considered this song, I knew I wanted Meg Baird and it was actually kind of a deal breaker. If Meg had said no, I’m not sure I’d have charged ahead with this.

Meg first came to prominence as part of Espers. Espers formed in 2002 and were a major part of the psychedelic folk scene of that era.

She cut an incredible album of covers with her Espers bandmate Helena Espvall and Englush songwriter Sharron Kraus in 2006

Following that, she began making solo albums for Drag City, the latest of which is “Furling” which came out this year

I knew 100% that this was going to be incredible and Meg did not disappoint. Recorded and mixed by Ben Chasny, every time I hear this, I get goosebumps.
