About Phoebe Smith
Phoebe Smith (1913-2001) is thought by many to have been one of England's greatest traditional singers. She had a style and delivery that stunned an audience into silence, and to hear her in full flight at the end of her CD "The Yellow Handkerchief" is a revelation. She was born in 1913 in Faversham, Kent, and was one of the daughters of Bill Scamp and his wife Ann Jones. She was raised in a large Gypsy family and spent much of her early life picking fruit in Kent. Having married Joe Smith, a scrap dealer, she moved around Kent and Essex before setting in Woodbridge, Suffolk
