It is very well-documented and easily understood that Anne Briggs' relatively brief recording career has had a continuing influence on succeeding generations of folk singers and the wider musical world. Christy Moore, June Tabor, Eliza Carthy and Kate Rusby have all spoken of her influence on their own singing. As recently as 2009 The Decemberists based their The Hazards Of Love song cycle on the Anne Briggs collection of the same name.

In the summer of 1966 Peter Kennedy recorded a series of 45 minute radio programmes for the BBC. Folk-Song Cellar was presented as 'an informal get-together' in a fictional 'folk club' hosted by Robin Hall and Jimmie MacGregor and over the 39 broadcast episodes featured over one hundred performers from Britain and Ireland, including Anne Briggs.

These rare, simple, unadorned and intimate performances, aching with poignancy, make their first appearance on record, fifty years after recording and capture Anne Briggs singing at just the right time.
