Well unless Steve tell's me otherwise...I'll continue:

jazz/rock and blues keboard player, born in London...early career playing with various future greats of the music business, late 60's group had notable success with his brand of jazz tinged pop. A failed peiod in a Dutch commune was followed by another jazz rock group. He produced albums, played sessions and was musical director for a German t.v. series! In recent times has revived his 70's jazz rock band. Has also toured with Eric Burdon.

Hoping that you're right, and that I haven't wasted a brain cell or two....Brian Auger?

BTW, did he invent a tool for moving materials by means of a helical flighting?

In reply to an earlier post on 22 Apr 2010 15:32:26 BDT
Did he? I'm certainly not aware of it Toffee! But well got and fast as too!
Your turn.

Toffeeman says:
That tool is called an Auger, but they've been around for hundreds of years, so I doubt it.....I'll give the next one some thought.

Toffeeman says:
OK then. Female singer and part time actress, sometimes solo and sometimes in groups, got it together with another singer (and songwriter)to produce a further leg of an extensive musical family tree.

Are we talking Carter/Cash family here?

By the way Toffee, what an earth is that on your profile picture? Is that you dressed up as a member of Kiss for the office Christmas party? Or maybe some type of 'Papa Lazarou' character from Royston Vasey?

Toffeeman says:
No we're not. But we are talking America (the continent).

The picture? No not me. It is a Kiss reference from Randy Newman's LP "Born Again". You'll notice the dollar signs. Apparently RN thought that Kiss might be motivated by money.

Ahhh! Of course it is! Should of recognised that immediatley!

Toffeeman says:
Is this a little touch of irony or are you familiar with the aforementioned LP

In reply to an earlier post on 22 Apr 2010 17:18:35 BDT
no no, I'm actually not a huge fan of Newman, (I have Little Criminals and Sail Away), so didn't immediatley click!

Toffeeman says:
The only two other LPs I would suggest are 12 Songs and Good Old Boys.

Anyway, back to the clue. Any ideas?

I'mm tempted to suggest Kate McGarrigle, but as far as I'm aware she wasn't an actress.

How about Faith Hill?

NC, you're the closest, by miles....

nocheese says:
Aha! In that case I'm going for Suzzy Roche.

In reply to an earlier post on 23 Apr 2010 10:23:02 BDT
Toffeeman says:
Indeed, the mother of Lucy Wainwright Roche, and Rufus wasn't the dad.....

Suzzy appeared in the film Crossing Delancey, and she and her sisters provided a version of the Fleetwoods Come Softly To Me.

All from memory.

Over to you NC

Born in West Virginia, but relocating to Boulder, Colorado, this singer is equally adept at old-time, folk, blues and gospel music. She has recorded with her brother as well as making solo albums. Among her many illustrious collaborators is Garrison Keillor, and she shares her name with a minor Star Trek character.

I suspect not but..Kathy Mattea?

Your suspicions are well founded - not her.

Glad to have got that out of the way....

OK, you said "this singer is...". No chance that it should be "this singer was........"?

nocheese says:
Very much alive and performing. I saw her with her better-known brother earlier this year. You will certailny have heard of him. She doesn't have her own Wiki entry, although she features in her brother's. The gospel music/Garrison Keillor trail may be worth following, and the Star Trek character is minor in both senses.

Toffeeman says:
Garrison Keillor recorded an album with Robin and Linda Williams who both came from Virginia, but they're husband and wife, and it's not the very famous Robin Williams
