Subject: RE: John Roberts and Tony Barrand
Have always loved hearing John and Tony together. They have a special magic.

Ye Mariners All are a wonderful group too. They've been performing at maritime festivals. Their "Ye Mariners All" CD is splendid. Every song (except one... I won't say which) was a winner in my book. The three performers, John Roberts (concertina), John Rockwell (guitar) and Larry Young (violin) complement each other very well and you can sort of see where each of them has contributed to the choice of material.

BTW they credit Charley Noble and Barry Finn as the sources for the version of the Yangtse River Chantey that's on this CD.
