Have just seen this stunning outfit in performance.Never heard harmony singing like it,redefines the genre.Has anyone else heard this group?Their album on Wildgoose Records should be selling in millions.

They are excellent. I'm not sure however that they compare with the early Young Tradition, and before Ramskyte became god-botherers they had an impressive 5-part wall of sound.

Kimber's Men are also a fine wall of sound (and flesh).

Oh, I should have said that I also like every generation of Coppers, and the Watersons were perhaps even better than the Young Tradition (again, so long as they stayed off hymns)

We have the Claque booked at the Old Oak Concert on April 21st during a rare visit North. Definitely one not to be missed if you love harmony singing.

They are the best new outfit I've heard for years. We've got them booked at the Lewes Saturday Folk Club to run an all-day ballad workshop and do an evening performance on Saturday 9th. April next year.

And some of us remember The Journeymen, Isca Fayre, Oak Leaves, Hollinmor - Exeter: Harmony: since forever. And the Claque maintain the tradition superbly.
