Oooh, this year is shaping up beautifully with return visits to some of our favourite venues and events including The Magic Garden in Battersea, the Barge Inn, Honeystreet; The Old Gaffers Festival; The lovely Beggars Fair in Romsey (http://www.beggars-fair.org.uk/) ; Sidmouth FolkWeek, Whitby Regatta; The Looe Festival and the Great Dorset Steam Fair! We're also really looking forward to some new venues and events such as Caerphilly Workmen's Hall and Stockfest (http://stockfest2013.co.uk/) - a lovely two week long arts and music festival in the village of Stock Cross near Newbury. We also can't wait to get to the wonderful fishing village of Clovelly for their Gig Regatta and their Herring Festival. See the gigs page for all confirmed gigs so far and loads more pending!
We're also looking forward to playing you lots of new songs -some of them are already in the set and a few more on their way! We're really pleased with the response we're getting to new songs like My Lady of Corfe and Young Love and our very untraditional version of the traditional Lambton Worm! As you know, we don't do many covers but ...Click on the link below to hear us and fellow guests on the John Govier Saturday Show on BBC Radio Devon a few months ago having a bit of a jam session to end the programme. We enjoyed playing this song so much, we've now done a band version of it. Come to a gig and you'll hear it!
Our recent single is still available (see above) and we are very proud that it is being used as a module on self-esteem by a school in Australia and also by a sixth-form college here in Dorset. We are currently talking to a number of Educational Publishers about 'Gorgeous' ... Fingers crossed!
As you can see from the above, we love playing Steam Fairs, Beer Festivals and other similar events. We were delighted to be at The Great Dorset Steam Fair again last year. We have made many friends there - and at other Steam Fairs - over the years. As a result of our various musical performances and our ability to match them pint-for-pint, we are proud to be officially approved by the Society of Drivers and Engine Men - S.O.D.E.M! We are also honoured to have played at the wedding of a great Steamer and SODEM member last Autumn - and what a wedding it was! Thank you, guys!
