Pete_Standing Van Eyken this Saturday! (11) RE: Van Eyken this Saturday! 03 May 07

I'd been thinking of VE's future recently and thought Bella Hardy would have been a good candidate. Cracking voice, capable fiddle player (in fact a fiddle singer) and can clog too.

Another person I had thought of was Bella's colleague from Ola, Helen Bell. A very gifted viola (and violin) player with a style and tone not dissimilar to Nancy, prolific writer of tunes and some well crafted songs too. Doesn't sing much, but her playing is very impressive. I sometimes wonder if Helen will be forever a little known genius.

The current line-up has a great chemistry. They kind of remind me of early versions of Fairport. Who knows where the time goes? Sigh.
