English folk singer Laura Marling has just released her latest album, Once I Was an Eagle. It’s her fourth studio record (in just over 5 years’ time) — a collection of 16 songs written on tour last year.
After playing in Portland recently, Marling made a return visit to OPB for this session. She performs three of her new songs, and we talk about her recent move to Los Angeles, the new film featuring her songs, and writing music for a Royal Shakespeare Company production of As You Like It.
