Karine Polwart is a celebrated Scottish folksinger. In 2005 she won best folk album and artist from BBC Radio. Think of her as an unsung KT Tunstall. She shares label space in the UK with Laura Cantrell, Amy Rigby and Jason Ringenburg at Spit and Polish Records.
Her new record, Scribbled In Chalk, is due out in the UK on Monday April 4th. Her Scottish accent is just prominent enough to add a bit of an original style to her soaring folk music. And while there is probably much more you can glean from this song, I’m left with the image of a sweater unraveling in one’s dreams.
P.S. Here’s a You Tube video of “I’m Goin To Do It All” from the same record. As beautiful, if not more so.

P.P.S Over at Swedesplease I have a one song preview of a prominent singsongwriter’s new record. I’m going to leave it at that in case you know who is trolling around the internet.
