I Ask The Questions: Buffy Sainte-Marie

Sylvie Simmons, Mail On Sunday, 1996

BUFFY SAINTE-MARIE. Supersquaw, or what? Writes her first song as a papoose, gets a degree in philopsophy, tosses in a PhD in Fine Arts just for the hell of it, then straps on a guitar and becomes a leading ‘60s folkie. Hobnobs with Bob Dylan. And Donovan. Whom she singlehandedly transforms from a ringleted flower-child into a protest-singing British Bob with her song ‘Universal Soldier’.

Total word count of piece: 1075
