Out To Play

Expanding the Peel theme for a bit, here's our Britfolk trivia facts desk in action. Shortlived late sixties duo Trader Horne was named after John Peel's nanny. Her name was Florence Horne, and she was nicknamed Trader in tribute to the famous 19th century explorer Trader Horn. Bet you didn't know that, pop kids. Addendum: just add some electronic weirdness and the rather lovely Jenny May could be mistaken for a tune by the modern freakfolkers of Tunng.

Trader Horne - Jenny May
Tunng - Jenny Again
