Sandy Denny - Under Review is a documentary film reviewing the music and career of arguably Britain's finest ever female vocalist and songwriter. Although Sandy Denny is revered deeply amongst fans of folk music and the "singer-songwriter" genre, she has never received the universal acclaim so long overdue and so often heaped on those of far lesser talent. This program attempts to redress this imbalance and reveal why she remains such an inspiration to so many.
British folk singer and onetime vocalist for the Fairport Convention, Sandy Denny was much loved in her native U.K. in the 1960s and '70s and is the influential predecessor of numerous folk acts of later years. Her acclaim was, however, neglected stateside, and this program attempts to redress that, providing rare footage, photographs, and performances, while a team of critics provides analysis of her work.
