EFDSS awards gold badges, not medals. If anyone from within the membership nominated SoH, I'm sure it would be given due consideration by the panel.

Are you a member, Liam? You could nominate them yourself.

"As I stated before the only people calling SOH folk are the anti SOH crowd, nowhere in any interview have Steve Knightley or Phil Beer ever said they are folk".

Here's one where they do. They have called themselves folk at most gigs of theirs I have been at too.

Living Tradition

Sod MBEs. Where are their EFDSS Gold Medals is what I want to know? They have both done just as much for folk as some of its recipients. I think it might surprise some EFDSS Council Members just how many traditional songs there are in the Show of Hands repertoire, but then they might actually need to listen to Show of Hands play or more than one CD to find out.

For many many years, in Henley-on-Thames,has there been a dress-shop called " Gladys Falloon ", so at least we know that the word exists, if only as a surname. As to SOH- well, I can't say I really like them very much. I personally think that PB is a talented and gifted musician,whilst SK is supremely egotistical to the point almost of narcissism,and his boring songs all sound the same to me. But if I had an OBE to spare, I would certainly give Miranda one !!

I'm not sure about falloon in the case you mention.

It was a word in a book called cats cradle by the late Kurt Vonnegut.
Vonnegut wrote science fiction and the precise details of the story have disappeared into the abeyance file of my brain.

But basically there was an extra terrestial life form who believed in a rational universe. Random coincidence was when the creator sort of lifted his skirts and gave you a glimpse or a sense of the great cosmic plan being in place just under the surface reality - these moments of revelation were falloons. A falloon would be Paul Downes's Mum knowing my Mum. A grand falloon would Phil Beer's dad knowing my dad AS WELL!

WLD - can you translate 'falloon' for me? I've been puzzled by that word for 30 years. There's a song in the Hammond Brothers collection about Prince Albert called 'To Marry the Queen of England' and one verse has the lines 'My father gave me a nice falloon,a piece of bread and a mutton bone, and ninepence when I left ny home, to marry the Queen of England.'

I've never been able to find out what a 'falloon' is, so.......

I'll tell you a story.

Sometime in the 1970's I had this jugband - we used to call it Juggerlugs - a witty misapropriation of 'Buggerlugs' - a North of England term of endearment (for our colonial pals).

Anyway we were pretty shite, but we had a residency at Tamworth Golf Club - we got three quid between us; and we got to see the pro act; and you could order anything off the menu - chicken and chips in a basket, scampi in a basket, steak and chips, whatever....
(I remember my wife(who played percussion) used help set up the gear, and then dash home to watch Poldark!)

One night, this shitty old car draws up. And I recognise the DE registration - two young guys get out. And I say in my best Bob Cann/Ken Penny impersonation - ah! you'm fram Execketer!
(trans: oh I see you chaps hail from the city of Exeter).

fascinated by my expertise with car number plates - I have to confess that I only know abow about DE plates cos I used to live in Exeter.

The two guys introduce themselves as Downes and Beer. And after some preliminary chatter it turns out that Phil's Dad is Ken Beer, who is my Dad's boss at the mental hospital in Exeter, and Paul Downes's Mum is the Downes of Downes and Paling who write maths books for junior schools - and she has something to do with Rolle College, Exmouth where my Mum was a mature student.

As Kurt Vonnegut would say - a grand falloon!

My memory of them is undiminshed. They were simply brilliant instrumentalists. I still think Paul Downes is the best guitar accompanist in England - Phil hopped from guitar to mandolin, to fiddle - retuning the guitar (at home in various open tunings) effortlessly - he must have been three or four years younger than I was - he just had mercurial and prodigious talent.
I remember that that night they'd travelled up from Portsmouth - they were sleeping on someone's floor. the fee was £25 and they were working for the agent Joe Stead - so I presume, there was an agents commission to pay.

And they were so generous spirited - writing down the words of songs we liked.

You know the parable of the talents. these guys really have given it their best shot. I've watched the progress of Downes and Beer for over thirty years now. the Arizona smoke review, the solo projects, the Knightly connection......

godammit! they're not only pretty special - they've been special for a long time!

There's no such thing as a British Empire so how can anyone be a member of it. It's this sort of imperialist rubbish that has plagued this country for centuries. We're talking about folk music here not music that reinforces a class sytem headed by a bunch of over-privileged disfunctional wasters. (But, if anyone deserves an award it's SOH, so how about an RMFC - Respected Member of the Folk Community?)

I've played mandolin for many years, tenor banjo not quite as long, I played semi pro in a band for a few years but just play for fun now.

I don't begrudge Show Of Hands their success, it just irritates me when people proclaim them to be the worlds greatest gift to music and mankind in general, I've listened to, played, and been involved in folk music for over 40 years, SOH don't come close to the best of ANY folk/traditional or acoustic music I've listened to, seen or heard, not even in the top 50.

Eric, I suspect, is a member of the I-don't-like-them-so-there're-crap militia that patrols this site.

Taking care not to fall into the same trap (I-like-them-so-they're-great), I would say that I did not always regard SoH as anything special. At one Albert HAll show, I thought them very ordinary, perhaps a reflection of how far back and up my seat was.

But I have become more familiar with their music, seen them in more intimate settings, been closer at the Albert Hall and come to see them as an excellent duo and even better trio (with Miranda).

Phil is the obvious musician, but Steve has a decent voice and writes the songs. Not all are winners - wouldn't most songwriters own up to that? - but the better ones, including Cousin Jack, Roots & Country Life, are, again in my view, outstanding. This is my my review at Salut! Live for anyone who cares.

MBEs? I am probably with Eric on the honours system.

They're a very good live act. I was booked to support them once, not having heard much of their stuff before, and was sufficiently impressed to actually pay to go and see them the next time they were in my near vicinity. That said, it is probably true to say that it's Beer who carries them, musically and melodically. Some of the original songs are stronger than others.

Where can we hear examples of Eric the Red's performing prowess, though, that's what I want to know.

Fantastic. Years back I was teaching in Canada's north and some kids played a new song for me by a group they had discovered. "I Want to Hold Your Hand" by the four lads from Liverpool. I asked if the kids thought the group would make it? They were in agreement. The group would be around for a while.

I recall taking them some tapes (cassette) of Abby Road, SPLHCB, Revolver and one other. They were quite amazed. Those kids also listened to traditional songs in their language, country music and rock.

The Kinks were new to them as were some other folks like Ry Cooder. Interesting time apart from some evenings at -55 degrees C.

Come to that my dad was mandolin player - that's neither here nor there. Of course people have played the mandolin since the year dot. My Dad didn't do what Phil did though - make albums that would aid the development of other mandolin players.

As I remember he made a triple album - specifically for players who had learned a few tunes and wanted to make the next steps forward.


Anyway if SOH don't say they're folk, i WILL.

Some plonker in the Arts and Crafts movement restarts a pie thumping competition - complete with the pie thumpng song (that hasn't seen the light of day for six hundred years) and you buggers are queueing up hand out arts council grants and do special features on it.

SOH write about a real festival like the Cheltenham Gold Cup or the recession in the poorest county in the realm - and its not folk music.

Irrespective of SOH's many qualities and whether or not they deserve an honour, like eric the red I find that statement hard to fully digest having played the mandolin myself for at least 45 years and appreciated and learned from the example of many of the players he lists plus other notables like Jethro Burns and Simon Mayor.

well I would say they'd done a fair bit.

Phil Beer has played an important part in the re-popularisation of the mandoline. He has recorded whole albums specififically for that interest group. As part of the Downes /Beer duo - he charged up and down the country playing folk clubs and making sod all money and playing quite a fair number of trad songs.

I think also with their Albert Hall concerts - they have proved beyond question that this music does have a constituency, and they have provided adequate proof to assholes who don't listen very hard to public unrest.

Finally the have written at least two songs - follow me down cousin jack and the galway farmer that are already staples in trad singers repertoires.

Thats what I'm aware of and I don't follow their career with any great devotion. Its just stuff that virtually every folk club goer is aware of.

They should all take a lesson from the late Hamish Henderson, he famously refused an honour from the Thatcher regime saying he couldn't accept an honour from a government who supported the nuclear arms race.

I can't imagine anyone less deserving than SOH, what the feck have they done for the tradition, which is what ' most ' folk musicians get them for, not for services to showbiz, like SOH.
