Oh heck....was EVER a Maiden rendered MORE helpless?

I have to go and lie down after hearing these wonderful voices!

This is glorious; it's a pity the sound quality is so poor, but the vigour of the performance comes through.

I'd best put this story into this thread too, as it's so relevant.

I first heard three of these lovely men singing at Sidmouth Folk Week 2005...actually, it was after one of the meetings just prior to the Folk Week taking place, as I recall now. It was the Folk Week that wasn't ever supposed to take place, but of course, it did...and it saved Sidmouth for the future...So much hard work and love was poured into that first Folk Week, following the end of Sidmouth International Folk Festival....

Well, some of the guys organising the Folk Week decided to go and have a drink in The Bedford Hotel after the meeting...and as my (then) husband was on the Committee too, I was asked along. So, I went...We sat in the bar first, having a drink, and I got to talk to Barry Lister, on the right in the videos above...and heck did he make me laugh!   He's so funny, a lovely man, really lovely...and he giggles fit to burst...


Well, Barry asked if we'd like to hear some 'singing'...and we said yes, we would..So, he comandeered one of the rooms in The Bedford and we trooped....

There was Barry, Sean and Tom...peter and I and another lady...and then another chap turned up half way through, who joined in with the singing....but to start with, it was just Barry, Tom and Sean.   I didn't know what to expect, to be honest...but heck, did I soon find out!

Those voices brought tears to my eyes! They sang solo and together...and most of the time all of them had their eyes closed...lost in the songs...Song after song came out as everyone relaxed and enjoyed themselves...

It was, quite simply, one of the most memorable nights of my life, one to be filed in the 'Special Drawer' in my muddled mind..

And...I can highly recommend Barry Lister's great CD 'Ghosts & Greasepaint'....You can find that here, and listen to 'The Trim Rigged Doxy' too (whoohooo!) :0)....and you'll find The Claque there too..

I saw The Claque at Bideford recently.It was like an extended family Sunday lunch of the best kind.They were warm,inclusive and really funny in an abstract way,following threads of thought and bringing us in on discussion of the threads and going off on mad tangents of interaction with the audience in an extremely nice way.Fantastic!

Thanks, Lizzie.

I'm enjoying their video 'Four and twenty fiddlers all of a row'

Lovely stuff and lovely people.
I have fond memories of the Sidmouth festival the year that Barry and Tom ran it.
And of Barry bringing his tuba (in the background on that video) to a fabulous session we had at the Sidbury Red Lion during folk week a couple of years earlier.

There is a separate thread about the all-day ballad forum and evening performance they're doing for the Lewes Saturday Folk Club on Saturday 9th. April.

Oh the things I could write there! But I'm going to be very polite and not say a word, other than 'I got the giggles when I saw that tuba'....
