Uncut writer pens definitive biography of the Fairports singer…

Sandy Denny is the subject of a new biography due for publication in March 2015.

I’ve Always Kept A Unicorn is written by Uncut contributor Mick Houghton and published by Faber & Faber.

Denny joined Fairport Convention in 1968, releasing three albums with them before her departure just ahead of the release of the celebrated Liege & Lief.

She formed Fotheringay in 1970, but left after recording just one album. After leaving, she recorded with Led Zeppelin on “The Battle Of Evermore” – the only guest vocalist ever to record with the group.

Denny released four solo albums before her death, aged 31, in 1978.
