For information:

Tamarack will be Playing at The North Euston Hotel, Fleetwood Lancashire, England on Saturday 17th November.

This is a free event by a Canadian group who many will remember when down a storm at the Fylde folk festival and well worth catching....

Myself and Ian Gartside will be supporting them on the night.....

It may depend on when you last saw them how great you think they are now. After "toiling" for 25 years (or whatever length of time, it may have been 30) "in the Folk Mines" James Gordon left the group a while ago now and is persueing a Solo career. They are still good with Alex Sinclair and the two new people, sorry names forgotten. IMHO they are not as good, and never really have been since Gwen Swick left them. JohnB

Yes I would agree the band was better with James Gordon - however - even without him they are an excellent band and most enjoyable and profesional, and in my opinion well worth catching on this UK tour - and considering the concert is FREE - what can you loose?

The current trio consisting of Alex Sinclair (guitar, mandolin, vocals), Molly Kurvink (bass guitar, vocals) and Shelley Coopersmith (violin, mandolin, vocals).

James is currently playing and singing with Sandy Horne and as yet I haven't heard their offerings and as far as I am aware James is not touring internationally (due to the same reasons that he left Tamarack [as far as I am aware])

You didn't say it was FREE, of course you have to support it. I agree they are a technically very proficient band, they just don't seem to have sorted out yet where they want to be. Sorry though, even it is free I can't afford the airfare from Toronto. JohnB

Oh yes I did (third line!- "this is a free event".....) :-)

The entry was really aimed at more local people although I'm sure everyone is welcome - and if any Mudcatters do come along say "hello" I'm the old bugger with a beard and a solid bodied electric banjo lacking hair on top but slowly creeping down me back (pony tail not body hair!!!)

I believe they're also playing at Wrea Green the day after (Sunday) for those who would like to see them whilst they're in the area and can't make the Saturday.

Sorry, you did say that didn't you. Really makes me wonder why more people aren't interested, there's only you and I here keeping this thread alive. I guess we even look similar from your above description. I just don't have a "solid bodied electric banjo lacking hair on top" :) Actually I have never seen a solid body electric banjo, with or without hair. How do you get a banjo sound from a solid body?. I do have a "slowly creeping down me back (pony tail not body hair" however, well a bit of body hair. I was at the first couple of Flylde FF's in about 1975/6 ish. What do you think of Tanglefoot, if you have heard them, another Canadian product. JohnB

sure have seen Tanglefoot - a great export......

Re Solid Bodied electric banjo - it does have a "tone module" to give it a more acoustic sound when amplified - although most of the the time I play it through a zoom effects unit which also doubles as a fold-back with its output fed to the main mixing desk. they (I have 2) are made by Terry Swan a UK builder from Nottingham (there's a review on our local site - www.fyldefolk.co.uk) and I've been more than pleased with them. Playing across a wide field of music from Traditional Folk to 50's Rock 'n' Roll I've found it to be very versatile sounding like an acoustic banjo or a lead guitar!

If you were at the FFF in the early days we must have seen one another at some time or other as Ian Gartside has played at every one (including No1)and I've been around most of them! in various guises

Well I'm off to a gig now so will go and throw the gear into the car.... looking forward to tomorrow and the concert as we won't have to supply our pa and sound man!!!!

Pete
