Tune of the day - Sandy Denny - 'Fotheringay'

It's pretty much impossible to find anything decent with video on Youtube from the long-deceased English folk music queen, and former 'Fairport Convention' member Sandy Denny doing any of her more famous self-penned 'hits', like 'Who knows where the time goes?' or 'Sad Refrains'.

So, have to make do with this English Tourist board-type collage featuring another of her tunes - 'Fotheringay' (sung here with the Fairports), a haunting, reflective, number about the long imprisonment, exile and ultimate death of Mary, Queen of Scots.
