This has been mentioned previously in an inappropriately named thread, and the facts have been updated since, so here's a new version:

Uncle Henry's Favorites are a bunch of friends who play and sing Old Time string band music from the Southern Appalachians. They are Pete and Ellen Vigour from Virginia and Arnie Naiman from Toronto until 25 Feb when Ellen will be replaced by Dick Harrington from Virginia.
They use various combinations of fiddle, mandolin, banjo and guitar

Debby McClatchy's been coming over to the UK to tour regularly since the seventies, and is very well known to UK folk audiences. Uncle Henry's Favorites will be making their first trip as a band, though some of them know parts of England, having friends and relatives here. I saw a slightly different lineup doing excellently in the very strong String Band competition at Clifftop, West Virginia last August. If you went to see them, you'd be doing yourself a big favour....
Cheers
Ray

Unfortunately last night's gig in Baslow and tonight's session in Baslow are cancelled because of the sudden closure of the Devonshire Arms. I took the band for a walk up Kinder Scout yesterday in superb visibility, which really impressed them. The remaining 4 gigs in the West Country are still scheduled to happen, so we'll keep our fingers crossed. The gigs so far have been splendid, with great reception from the audiences.
Tonight we'll be calling in on the Ukrainian Club session in Doncaster for some fun.
Cheers
Ray

Zen... also possibly of interest would be (I guess a new thread would be appropriate but it refreshes this one and I'm lazy):

Going Across the Sea is the name given to a new and exciting collaboration. Seven of the greatest musicians from both sides of the Atlantic come together to celebrate and explore the music which travelled with the emigrants from Scotland and Ireland to America – and back again. They are:

Kris Drever (Orkney), Sarah Mcfadyen (Orkney), Eamonn Coyne (Ireland), Tim Matthew (Scotland), Betse Ellis (Missouri - The Wilders), Caleb Klauder (Oregon - Foghorn String Band) and Sammy Lind (Oregon - Foghorn String Band)

Thanks Stephie - It was great meeting you and Roger too.

I got them to the airport today after a great last session in Aylesbury at the Hop Pole, where there's a regular OT session, usually on Wednesdays, I think.
Cheers
