Fern Knight, fronted by singer-songwriter Margaret Wienk,
was set apart from the ranks of freak-folk by two aspects of their music:
they played gothic folk-rock that was relatively straightforward,
and they kept the
timbral opulence (organ, guitar, violin, cello, accordion) under control.
Seven Years of Severed Limbs (Normal, 2003) was still naive, spartan and
lightweight (and largely composed by the producer).
Music For Witches and Alchemists (VHF, 2007) was elegant and cohesive,
and this time it was mostly Wienk's own material.
Fern Knight (2008) was more explicit in
bridging the Celtic and Appalachian worlds, and ventured into
baroque chamber music with the Magpie Suite.
