Nadia Cattouse

Perhaps the most sonically out-of-place artist on Cult Cargo: Belize City Boil Up is the Belize-born Nadia Cattouse. Cattouse moved from her homeland to London in the late sixties where she became a minor television star on such programs as the BBC’s Sing Along and Hootenanny. Something of a folk scenester and a contemporary to Julie Felix and Fairport Convention, Melody Maker called Cattouse “one of the giants of the folk-song revival in Britain.” “Long Time Boy,” her only C.E.S. single, demonstrates the distinct influences of both French pop and the London folk scene.
