Subject: Kerfuffle
From: Weasel
Date: 21 Dec 09 - 07:07 PM

In the discussion on the Christmas TV show someone mentioned Kerfuffle.

I don't know them at all so I looked them up on Youtube - what a wonderful group, given that they've been going for so long I don't know how I've missed them.

Once again this forum contributes to my education!

Cheers,

Weasel

Around here, a kerfuffle is a sort of dust up or a prelude to a punch up.

Yeah, it is here too (well, it's more a fuss really) - but I like the group.

Hi Weasel, have been a fan of these four very talented youngsters for a long time:

Hannah James & Sam Sweeney both from Kerfuffle have released an album together this year: Catches and Glees
Their website: http://www.hannahandsam.co.uk/
Listen & tour dates:: http://www.myspace.com/hannahjamesandsamsweeney

"Hannah and Sam have been performing together for years, primarily as half of the festival favourites, Kerfuffle. They are well known for their other work as members of Bellowhead, The Demon Barbers, Jon Boden & The Remnant Kings and The Fay Hield Trio."

"We have been nominated in the Horizon category for the 2010 BBC Folk Awards. We are very pleased and very glad to be joined by Kat and Jamie who have also been nominated"

Jamie Roberts from Kerfuffle has also teamed up with Katriona Gilmore (Kat & Jamie)

Katriona Gilmore & Jamie Roberts

Listen & tour dates: http://www.myspace.com/gilmoreroberts

Last but not least: Tom Sweeney of Kerfuffle writes most eloquently on his newish Blogspace here:

We have had Kerfuffle at Faldingworth Live and they were brilliant.
We have them back on June 5th 2010.

Les - It was mainly their performance at Faldingworth that made me think they would have been good for the BBC Christmas party.

A never to be forgotten Christmas gathering at Ashover Parish Hall: Kerfuffle, the Sheffield Folk Chorale with Graham & Eileen Pratt and the Winster Guisers performing in full manic madness. Then a clear starlit frosty night drive across the hills and edges of 3 Counties safely home. Seasonal celebrations at their best.

It is a pity Folkwaves on radio Derby could not find time in a two hour Christmas Special to feature a track from Lighten the Dark.

That is unusual, as I know, talking to Mick Peat and Lester Simpson that they love Kerfuffle.

Folkwaves featured Hannah James and Sam Sweeney as guests on their programme 7/12/2009 (listened to it on the way to Grand Union Folk thats how I know the date).
Didn't hear all of Monday's edition as I ran out of signal on M1

Not only do Mick & Lester play Kerfuffle tracks regularly, & by my count they've just about covered Lighten the Dark since the CD was handed to them, but Kerfuffle members together and in pairs appear frequently 'live' on the show.

Another BBC Folk Local Radio show where Lighten the Dark has been played ever since it landed in the 'pigeon' is Genevieve Tudor's Sunday Folk. Kerfuffle are favourites of this show's listeners too, played Gallery Carol & Sussex Carol last Sunday!

Show home page details, playlist & listen again here:

Thank Goodness It's Folk has also featured Hannah and Sam, way back in September!! And they appear on my Facebook page with a well-known voice from Radio 2 :-)

Incidentally if anyone wants to know why I rate the "unknown" Donald Grant as a fiddler supreme listen to the opening track of the second half of last week's show, which comes straight after the montage.
