We have had some fun over the last two months despite a few winter coughs and colds


February saw a return to the Cheshire Cheese in Little Essex Street as part of the Brandenburg Fringe Festival. Our co-performers were Academix and Treblesome. We had a fantastic evening and lots of support for our performance. We managed to include some new material too and this was spotted by the organiser. We really enjoy these performances to a varied audience who seem so interested in the stories behind our songs as well as the music.


In March we were honoured to step into the residents slot at the famous Cellar Upstairs Folk Club supporting Roy Bailey. What an evening! We had earlier performed a ceilidh in Nunhead but made the venue easily with time to spare. We had some surprises meeting old friends from abroad and some regulars from other clubs. We sang for two 20 min slots giving a good range of our songs and hope we will make a return trip before too long. Roy Bailey was amazing and some lovely thought provoking songs.


On Mother's Day (15th March) we were back to St Christopher's Hospice in Sydenham providing entertainment for their Sunday Lunch. There was a great crowd and despite the fact we were actually providing background music a surprising amount of interest in our songs. One member of the audience told us our rendition of the Jute Mill Song had brought a tear to his eye reminding him of his native home.


And so onward to April and kicking off on 3rd with a ceilidh at Charlton House. We will also be returning there at the end of the month, 24th for the annual St Georges Day celebration supporting John Kirkpatrick. In addition we will also be performing at Ruskin House for their regular St Georges event.

Well we have finally finished our long awaited CD "As the crow flies" and have released it under the GFMA label with many thanks to our long time supporter Louisa and everyone at Charlton House. Our official launch won't be until later this year at Charlton House when we will be supporting John Kirkpatrick. We will publish the date as soon as it is available so you can book your tickets. Meanwhile you can buy your own copy of the CD from this website. The postcard that is free with the CD can be adapted to make an insert with details of the songs we sing.


It has been an admin month for the band and getting bookings sorted for the Autumn and beyond. We have events at Croydon Folk and Blues Club, Tenterden Folk Festival, The Brandenburg Fringe Festival at the Old Cheshire Cheese and Charlton House as major events confirmed for later this year as well as our regular Two Brewers slots. Keep a close eye on the diary as bookings arrive for next year too!


We are taking a break over August and so wish all our followers a sunny summer holiday!
