Folk Week - Alela Diane

I saw this lass playing support to the afforementioned Michael Hurley and they seemed very happy to be sharing in a folkie reverie where he was passing on the trade to the next generation or something. They sang a few songs together and it was very sweet. she's reminiscent of early cat power but without the melodramatics and the live show histrionics. She's from the same part of the US as Joanna Newsom and aparantly they used to play Fashion Wheel together. Having seen her in the flesh i can confirm that she is pretty in a kind of non threatening way.

Below is the video for 'Pieces of String'
