“Pray my dear daughter don’t marry a folk singer, oh you know they never sing in tune,
Pray my dear daughter don’t marry a folk singer, they’re weird and they whine and never fill the room”

Could these be the best opening lines for a folk song all year? They belong to “Pray My Dear Daughter”, the first single from Charles Jenkins’ upcoming album Love Your Crooked Neighbour With Your Crooked Heart . The album is due on the 17th September and if “Pray My Dear Daughter” is anything to go by it’s going to be a lot of fun. Take a listen to the track below:
