Subject: Keith Marsden

At The Woods Music and Dance Camp last week I was reminded of the work of Keith Marsden. I have search the web with no success. Digital Tradition has one song only and the name Marsden does not appear in a thread title in the last 3 years.

I have been led to believe that there are 2 CDs.

So Mudders, what do you know about Keith, his music or the availabilty of recordings?

Tony,

I don't know much, but a quick search of Yahoo brought up comments on a new cd, since Keith's demise and listed the other band members, one of whom was Graham Pirt; I am assuming this must be the Mudcat's Graham Pirt. Maybe he'll see this thread and let you know.

Here's the only thing I was able to find:

Comments on Been Around For Years This album is the first by the group since the death of their founder member, Keith Marsden. The quality of the singing by remaining members, Val Marsden, Graham Pirt and John O'Hagan shows that the group remains as strong as ever. The unaccompanied harmonies are a delight with fine examples of counter melody. Give it a listen. Available from Fellside Records, 15 Banklands, Workington, Cumbria, England

Good Luck,

kat

Tony,

Following the death of Keith in 1991, great loss that it was, Val Marsden John O'Hagen and Graham Pirt the remaining members of Cockersdale put togethera book of his songs.

Its called Picking Sooty Blackberries" published by Fellside Music in 1992 ISBN 1 871318 01 7

I'm not sure if its still in print or if there are copies available but it worth a try.

Hope this is of use

Tony, Graham Pirt is at present at the Whitby Festival but will be back at the weekend I will see him tomorrow and tell him about this thread. Andy The book you mention was given to me by Graham just last year so I don't think it is out of print but Graham will fill you in about that. I'm not sure how many CDs Cockersdale have done but keep this thread going till Sunday till he gets home. Cheers Bill

Hmmm, found his songbook in London, UK when I visited. I know that the trio "Artisan" have recorded some of his songs. I couldn't find his recordings in England either.

Right now working on my fourth recording and soing his "Idlers and Scrivers" otherwise known as "Knocking at the Door".

I thought there was another member of the Cockersdale group: Peter Ogley. I'm terrible with names, but I'm sure that the person that I knew from this group is not listed above. It seemed he dropped off the edge of the earth; anybody know how he's doing?

Well, where do I start?

Keith's group Cockersdale is still performing and consists of Val Marsden, John O'Hagan and myself. The book that has been mentioned in the thread, "Picking Sooty Blackberries" is available from Fellside Records, 15 Banklands, Workington, Cumbria, UK. As earlier letters in the thread have pointed out we've been at Whitby Festival for the week where we put on our presentation of the book with slides and songs. We ran a workshop and created a choir of over 80 people to join us in the show.

After Keith's untimely death in 1991 we didn't sing for over a year. However we never stopped meeting on our rehearsal night and eventually we started singing again. Since that date we've produced a further two CDs, "Been Around For Years" and "Wide Open Skies".

If you want any further info about Keith or the group let me know.

Sorry, forgot to answer about Peter Ogley. Peter was one of the original members of Cockersdale (and also The Watersons) He suffered voice problems in the mid 80's and had to give up. I saw him a few weeks ago and he is fine, and doing some singing.
