Traditional Shetland tunes

What a lovely lady and someone who plays great tunes. I now have the pleasure of having recorded both a talented mother and daughter, I wonder can there be any more family yet?

A Paul F Eady's song

I love the gentle and sensitive way this couple present a song, what a pleasure to listen too. Dave is also a well respected songwriter whose songs have been  entertaining many around the folk circuit.

Written by Sally Vinson

Well what a singer song writer Sally is, she made the ‘hairs on the back of my neck’ stand up. I can’t believe that I just invite people to the caravan to sing and they come and just simply mesmerise me with their over following abilities.

An Al Neville song

When I first heard Al sing I thought this guy is special and very funny singer/songwriter. His card says: Songs to make you laugh and cry (not necessarily at the same time), how very accurate the description, I like to see a whole evenings worth of Al.

How lovely to see Hector again back on the folk circuit and looking so well. These recordings are as usual up to his  high standard that we have always expected from him.

Miners Lullaby

Written by Claire Beorn Norman and Jonathan Berger

Well I first saw Jacqui creating beautiful crocheting at the festival and she was also singing along with the choruses at the same time, talk about multi-tasking! Jacqui also has a fine voice as you will experience in her recordings.

I first saw Alice perform at The West Somerset Festival last year and was lucky enough this time to get her to come to the caravan and record a few songs at this years Banbury Song and Ale, a great voice!

You Ain't Just a Whistling Dixi

By The Bellamy Brothers

David Wylde

Franklins Lament

http://youtu.be/NzmVV nYOxX8

Reputed to have been published as a broadside as early as 1852, allegedly written by Jane Griffin, Lady Franklin

It was lovely to hear the most romantic way that David met Alice in the states and you hear this on David’s recordings as well as his singing Lord Franklin’s widow’s lament.

Kevin Sextant

Kevin is one of those singers of fine voice that adds greatly to every good singing session and can be relied upon to bring out the best songs that we all love.

Jeremy has some really good paradises that are funny and entertaining delivered with a dry and deliberate wit!
