Legendary folk singer Jean Redpath has died, aged 77.
The Scottish-born star passed away on Thursday (21Aug14) at a hospice in Arizona following a battle with cancer.
Redpath lived with Bob Dylan after she moved to the U.S. in the 1960s and the pair worked together on a number of occasions.
She released more than 15 albums throughout her 50-year career, toured the U.S. and Australia during the 1970s and made regular appearances on radio variety show A Prairie Home Companion.
Redpath was also appointed artist-in-residence at the University of Stirling in Scotland in 1979 and gave lectures at Wesleyan University in Connecticut.
She was awarded a Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (Mbe) medal in 1987 for her services to music.
Corgan took to Instagram to confirm rumours of new Pumpkins material, saying the first songs could arrive as early as May.
