Sharron Kraus

 Sharron Kraus is a dark-folk gem. Listening to her high, clear voice cut through melodies woven from acoustic guitar, banjo and hurdy-gurdy, you may struggle to remember which late-'60s traditionalists beat her to the material. But with one small exception, these murder ballads and forest laments all come from Kraus' pen. Here's one folklore expert whose originals feel both authentic and alive.
