Subject: 'Saga' Derby Folk Group info required
From: TasKiNG
Date: 17 Jan 04 - 04:55 PM

Hi,

I am looking for any info about the folk group "SAGA". I know they were from Derby and had 3 members ( John Squire, Paul Richardson & Chris Mordey ).
I have one of their LP's ( Sweet Peg O' Derby ) and wondered if they recorded any more LP's.

I am also looking for any photographs of them performing together.

Any info about them or their songs ( lyrics, chords etc ) would be very much appreciated.

Sweet Peg was the group's second LP, the first being self titled and issued the year before on the same label (westwood). As I recall they also featured heavily on an album by (I think) Jon Raven.

Hope it helps

Why not email the enquiry to the Folk Waves programme, broadcast across the East Midlands from Radio Derby.

I think their email address is folkwaves@bbc.co.uk - you can also search for the programme's website for other contact details.

Hope this helps.

All the best

I think I may have a copy of the first album. These albums do have some value as they are very collectable in Germany. I cannot run you a copy at present as I do not own a turntable.
I do have a studio now but we are all digital.

Both albums were produced in the late sixties, its great to think someone is still enjoying the music.

Hi John,

Thanks for getting in contact. A copy of the album would be great.
I have a turntable connected to my PC so could copy it that way
or could lend you my turntable. Are you planning another visit to
the Derby Gaol Folk Club soon as I go there regularly ( This friday
for burns night actually ).

I managed to contact Paul Richardson via a friend ( tony clarke ) at work but he has lent his album to somebody.

I can be contacted directly via tas_king@hotmail.com

The 'sweet peg O Derby' album was my introduction to folk music. I am hoping that The Wizard of Alderley Edge
is on the 1st album as this is one of my favorite songs.

Cheers

Dave

My daughter alerted me to this site! Recordings: Here goes: Saga made three albums - one with John Raven and Joan Mills.

There is also a 'bootleg' CD around of Saga's last live outing at the Peasmouldia Folk Club in Derby.

Jack King, then of Radio Derby, recorded some stuff and Roy Mason of the Barley Mow Folk Club, Stapenhill, Burton, also recorded Saga live.

Yes it was the same Chris Mordey who ran Chris Mordey's Emporium.
But not retired. Alas and Lack-a-Day.

Just found this site from a search on Google. I remember Saga well as I come from Uttoxeter. The band may remember I booked them for Worcester College in the early 70's and they were on the same bill as the Boys of the Lough. If any of the band rad this it would be great to meet up again my email is Robert.heath@zen.co.uk.
Great times, thanks guys for all the gtreT times and the music which I still listen to.
Robert

Robert Heath - I do remember that concert with Boys of the Lough. Were Shirley & Dolly Collins on the bill as well? We were a bit naughty then as in we had sunk a few bottles of vino on the way to Worcester. Certainly loosened my fingers up a bit!

Sorry I didn't spot this thread sooner.

Roger Warren, although not performing, is still a very keen folkie and he and his wife, Frances, together with their daughter Tracey are promoting folk music at their real ale pub in Horsley Woodhouse, Derbyshire.

Any of you that are anywhere nearby, you should visit The Old Oak Inn. It was voted Camra Pub of the East Midlands in 2009. They also own (family run business) a micro-brewery, where their son Richard is the wizard brewer.

There is a music session on every last Tuesday of the month and Keith and I front concerts there about four times a year, at Roger's request.

The next concert is on the 22nd June and the guests are Gary and Vera Aspey.

If you want more information, you can visit Facebook and search for either "Old Oak Live!" for the concerts or "The Old Oak Inn" for other events happening at the pub.

Here is the blue clicky thing for the Gary and Vera Aspey concert next month.

Cheers

Sylvia

Paul Richardson - if you come back to this thread and see this message, would you mind getting in touch with me at contact@lostfolktapes.com about a lovely live recording I have of you at the Priesthouse FC from John Terry? I'd like to feature it at Lost Folk Tapes and do an interview with you if you're up for it...

If anyone who knows Paul sees this thread, would you please let him know about my message?

Cheers

Nigel

Lost Folk Tapes goes to Derbyshire again for an interview with Paul Richardson, formerly of Saga. We bring you some fantastic photos and memorabilia that Paul has kindly provided, as well as a recording of him playing a short set at the Priesthouse Folk Club in 1979, courtesy of John Terry.

Paul Richardson

Thanks Paul!
