Product description

Marian Henderson, Cameo.


Marian Henderson had some background as a jazz singer and this was often reflected in her folk singing. By 1963, she was a major folk performer in Sydney. In 1964, the Australian Broadcasting Commission (ABC) commenced a weekly television series Jazz meets Folk with Marian as a regular folk music performer.

From mid 1963, MARIAN HENDERSON played at the Troubadour in Sydney performing a mix of British, American and Australian traditional material. A “cool, tall, pale, frail girl i club n a pony tail” (according to Charles Higham),. Henderson was recruited by Pix Magazine to record a series of EPs for its readers in 1964.

During the same period, she attracted national attention by appearing weekly with Don Burrows, George Golla, John Sangster, The Green Hill Singers, etc., on the ABC television series Jazz Meets Folk,

Henderson’s folksinging drew discernibly on her beginnings as a jazz vocalist and her voice and style have been compared more than once to Nina Simone. “She has an indefinable quality that puts her right in world class”, declared Jim Carter. “Even after all this time, I thrill every time Marian sings”. The magazine Music Maker once dubbed her “one of the most complete and compelling artists Australia has produced”:

According to Australian Folklore Unit "Cameo" is one of the best LPs of the era. Music Maker judged it “impeccable ... way above what is usually done in Australia”.
