Description

Hedy West, one of the finest folk singers of her generation, was born in the hill country of northern Georgia. From an early age, traditional folk music played an integral role in her life. In the mid-'50s she won first prize at the Asheville Annual Folk Festival for her singing. She recorded 3 albums for the Vanguard label before moving to England. In the late '60s Hedy recorded three widely acclaimed albums for Topic records and one for the Fontana label before moving to Germany.

Most of her recordings drew heavily upon the repertoire of songs handed down in her family. Unreleased until now, 'Untitled' was one of the last projects Hedy prepared before her untimely death in July 2005.
