Fine Horseman

Fine Horseman, Anne Briggs 1

Fine Horseman is a song from Anne Briggs’ 1971 album The Time Has Come. It was originally a composition by Lal Waterson, which she didn’t record herself until later, adding extra verses in the process. I think Anne Briggs’s interpretation is definitive – it’s such a sparse, ambiguous and otherworldly recording, full of half-light and the scent of peat and old bracken.
