Thread Name: The Halliard - any memories of this group?
Your other post 'Back in business' made it on to the forum, so you might want to consider asking a JoeClone or Mudelf to close one of them to avoid confusion.

I have no 'Halliard' memories, but we may have a recording somewhere.... and I have an abiding memory of Nic Jones at Wadebridge Folk Festival (early 1980s', not too long after his accident) having his memory jogged by Tony Rose for the 'Bonny Light Horseman'. It was there that I heard my first Les Barker composition too, and remember that once Nic had twigged it wasn't the original, he was most appreciative.
