Really like Show of Hands. And saw Ade Edmondson and the Bad Shepherds this summer and they were really good fun! Otherwise, just keep coming back to Fairport's Liege and Lief.....

I went to a folk festival early this year in cumbria and saw a group called Mochara, a duo from Belfast i think, they were fantastic we would'nt let them leave the stage because of the encore's, i did buy thier cd and listen to it most days really worth getting. :flower:

I've got a copy of L&L but for me it's spoilt by Tam Lin. It just goes on and on and on and on and on. To quote Fred Wedlock's Folk Alphabet "All in 47 verses and an assortment of keys" but without the assortment of keys.

The Wombles :mrgreen:


Although we are quite keen on a lady called Flossi who appears at our local music festival, a french lady who sings with a geordie/french accent :shock:
