In an attempt to be topical, here are three women singing about snow (although I can't be 100% sure about the first one).

"Pure Lotus In Snow" - Zhang Limin (1970)

"Rain And Snow" - Pentangle (1971)

"Snow" - Georgia Seddon (2009)

Georgia Seddon is the daughter of one of my all time heroes, Mike Heron of the Incredible String Band, and very talented in her own right as you can hear. I had the great pleasure of seeing them perform in Dalston recently. A couple of days before that they had joined the Trembling Bells on stage at Cecil Sharp House for a rendition of Mike's old winter ghost story, "Feast of Stephen". That has now been released as a Christmas single, on the other side of which the Bells team up with Bonnie Prince Billy. You really ought to buy it. To tempt you, here is the original.

"Feast Of Stephen" - Mike Heron (1971)

Here are some men called Snow. The sublime and the ridiculous.
