Congratulations to P J Harvey!

P J Harvey won the Mercury Prize this week for Let England Shake. She is a native of West Dorset, and recorded the war-shadowed album in the beautiful village of Eype, a short journey along the Jurassic Coast from where I live. Here (below, from 0:10 onwards) is one from the archive: Harvey's superb performance of Kurt Weill's anti-war song, 'Ballad of the Soldier's Wife'.
