Thread Name: Geoff and Pennie Harris
Subject: RE: Geoff and Pennie Harris
In the late 1960s/early 70s Geoff and Pennie were the organisers of Brentwood Folk Club at the Castle, where I first started playing. Pennie was the first hammered dulcimer player I saw. Geoff had been in the Halliard but left when they turned pro and was replaced by Nic Jones.
I'm not aware of them appearing together on any other albums besides the ones GSS has already mentioned, but Pennie contributed dulcimer and vocals to Heather and Royston Woods' album 'No Relation'. Geoff appeared on Suzie Adams and Helen Watson's album 'Songbird'. They don't seem to have made an album in their own right, which is a pity as they were very good.
Last time I saw Geoff, which was a good many years ago, he was living in Dorset and still performing. I have no idea what became of Pennie.
