In The News – Kris Kristofferson (Folk)

Kris Kristofferson might well be the coolest person on the planet. Rebel Voice has long been a fan of this folk and country legend, and this song of his from his 2006 album, This Old Road, just goes to show how thoroughly decent and talented he is. Kris will be 83 on 22nd June of […]

Rhiannon Giddens – Wayfaring Stranger (US Folk)

Banjo, fiddle, guitar, she plays them all and can sing like the most seductive herald ever to emerge from the USA.

Kris Kristofferson – Sunday Morning Coming Down

Rebel Voice offers this for everyone who has ever suffered from a bad Sunday morning hangover. Should you ever have The Fear, you have our sympathies. There’s something about county music that resonates with hangovers… – If you care, give it a share –

Kris Kristofferson – Sister Sínead

This is a delight, as Kris Kristofferson sings a song he wrote for Sínead O’Connor after her harsh treatment at the hands of a Madison Square Garden audience in 1992, during a 30th birthday celebration for Bob Dylan. Kristofferson introduced the Irish firebrand and was heard to whisper to her, as the booing began, ‘Don’t […]
