Subject: The Sheep and the Hay by Farmstead
From: GUEST,Vern
Date: 11 Mar 02 - 01:25 PM

A number of years ago I ran accross a record (remember those?), which was titled "The Sheep and the Hay" by an English group called Farmstead. The lead person in the group was Vere Foster who played fiddle and other intruments and also did vocals. It was recorded in April 1977 and manufactured by Workington, Cumbia. Does anyone know this recording, the group, etc. I have only a cassette copy of this record and love the music, the style of performance, etc. The music is, I think, from Northern England. Would appreciate any help as to this recording. Would love to find a CD of this group. Also, does anyone have any great suggestions for me of recordings of other groups performing English music in a traditional style, perhaps featuring alot of fiddle? Thanks for your help.

I also have a cassette of this recording, which I remember fondly! I've transcribed the lyrics, and even sung them in the past, but I'm sorry, no disc! I think we bought the disc when visiting the Yorkshire Dales with friends from Germany. The only problem was, we bought it FOR them, so it travelled back to Germany at the end of their holiday!
If nayone does know of a recording out there, I'd be in the queue to buy it myself!
I'm looking for one, and that's how I came across your query, Vern!
Sorry I can't be any more help!
