Since our last posting, where we played The New Forest Folk Festival, we've been quite busy when it comes to treading the boards.
We've performed at the South Downs Folk Festival in Bognor Regis, supporting Steve Knightley and also played a whole host of smaller venues around the Midlands, tightening our little unit and airing new material. This culminated in a return to the Cropredy Festival Fringe this month after a four year gap . . . obviously there's been a pandemic in-between! It was great to be back and we played an hour and a half set on the same bill as such names as Dave Pegg, Dave Mattacks, Rick Sanders and annA ryderR. We had an absolute blast and we were joined for this one by our old guitarist Nigel King (Derek Eynon was away, holidaying in Bonnie Scotland), who filled in perfectly. For our last four numbers, the outrageously talented Marion Fleetwood leant us a hand, playing some unbelievable fiddle on "Celtic Moon", "You ain't goin' nowhere", "Swansong" and "Red Coat Ride" . . . . Fabulous indeed and we can't wait to return in the future!
With new songs being included in the current set, an old chestnut has made a welcome return . . . . "Rollercoaster" and we're really pleased at how it's working out. It's going down a storm!
As we head into the end of summer and welcome autumn, we've got an increasingly busy schedule, so please check out out current calendar and we'll hopefully catch you on one or two of those forthcoming dates.
See you soon folks!
Mark, Carolyn, Derek
