I'm sure many of us have, and have actually heard them.
many of us are familiar with the songs of the late Keith Marsden, only I learned yesterday that maybe all groups must go through quiet periods and that they can vanish in time.

Last night we in St Albans were treated to a super evening with the smooth talking John oceltic Hagan, Sam's dad Graham Pirt and Val 'the voice' Marsden.

I want you catters out there, to let me know how well known you think they are today please.

Please include your geographical location if you dont mind or not as the case may be.

thank you

this Friday we have Cloudstreet on their way to Chippenham FF

I'd never heard of them before Mudcat. Graham used to post here, and he and I traded PMs and e-mails. I wound up with several CDs, and love 'em! I know Graham had said a couple of times they'd been planning US tours, but as far as I know, they never made it.

I can't believe there are folk-type people who have never heard of Cockersdale!

They've been, for many years, one of the leading harmony-singing groups in the UK and it's almost impossible not to hear at least one of their songs at any folk club on any night you'd care to think of. It feels as though I can count on the fingers of one hand the number of occasions I've been to a club and not heard one of the old favourites - Old Peculier, The Manch, The Funeral Song, The Drovers, Hessle Road et many al.

Is it maybe that people don't make the connection between the writing of the late, great Keith Marsden and the group? Or have they had their 'quiet time' since Keith's death? Whatever, they're still around and, from what I've heard, they're still a great turn.

Oh, BTW - they'll be appearing at the Gainsborough Folk Festival in October, watch this space!!

I'd actually heard several of Keith Marsden's songs before I heard Cockersdale -- mostly sung by Brit singers (such as Geoff Thompson from Sheffield) who happened to be in the States for awhile. Then Jeri (and Mudcat) introduced me to their CDs. And I've met Sam Pirt and finally made the connection with his dad.

But the group was primarily introduced to me by Jeri and Mudcat -- I don't hear them get much (any) airplay on folk shows in our vicinity.

I'm in southeastern New Hampshire, USA.

Keith was one of the finest writers of folk song in the traditional style that England has ever had!!
He wrote from a deep understanding of what made people tick, what they cared about, mainly from a working class male point of view; his ability to say things with few words to convey understanding is what folk song is all about, in my opinion
Cockersdale continue to bring Keith's brilliance to folk clubs in a most entertaining way ~ long may they do so

He was the main stay of the Grove folk club in Leeds, which is still going strong despite recent upheavals; if you are ever in the UK/Leeds you must visit (Fridays) and sang with Brian Senior who I believe still goes
Early versions of Cockersdale included Peter Ogley, a lovely singer.

His songs have been sung now for going on 40 years

Derek and Dorothy Elliot sang Bring us a barrel, so did the late Bill Price, who toured Canada many years ago

Keith used to delight in passing off his songs - particularly Bring Us a Barrel as traditional. There's a bit about this in Picking Sooty Blackberries - both the book and the show. Apparently he used to pretend that he'd collected them from Charlie Bloggins (I forget the name) who turned out to be one of his bank clerks!

If you're not familiar with Keith's songs, you're missing a treat.

Actually - I first saw Cockersdale doing a floor spot in the Plough at Whitby during Folk Week. The line-up was Keith and Val Marsden, Peter Ogley and another female singer, and I'm not certain who, it being a VERY long time back. A long time before I got to know Val and Keith.
It was also about 12 months before I found myself working for the Tong-Cockersdals Countryside Scheme, which looked after parts of the Green Belt between Leeds and Bradford including Cockersdale - a small valley between the Pudsey Free State and the Independent Borough of Morley (in the Domesday Book long before Leeds was a muddy puddle).
They have always been a very entertaining act and a set of very nice people.
Quack!

One of my fondest memories is from many years ago when the Goole based Barleycorn Band started off doing pub gigs - they provided a relaxing evening of songs and tunes, mostly traditional. When they came to our neighbouring village pub, we went along. (Among the lineup were Graham Pirt and his two lads!) When they started into the Cockersdale songs, I was ecstatic. As they began "Bring Us A Barrel" I flashed the Cockersdale T shirt I was wearing under my sweater, and was invited to come and join in for the chorus. I consider this a great compliment, as my singing isn't of the best, but then Graham's nice like that!

I came across a recording by Cockersdale this afternoon, and I really liked it. Wonderful, unaccompanied harmony, and lots of interesting songs. A little research tells me that Graham Pirt is part of the group, and I've actually met him in the flesh - I had no idea he was THAT good a singer. The distaff member of the trio is Val Marsden, widow of Keith. The third member of the group is John O'Hagan, who has posted at Mudcat with the user name Cockersdale (well...he posted twice). Their Website is http://www.cockersdale.com.

And their recordings are terrific.

In the years before Cockersdale, myself, Sue Thornton and Peter Ogley started a group called Yan Tan Thether, which became Cockersdale when other committments meant I had to leave.

How things come full circle! Pete is now a (fairly) near neighbour of mine and he and I have joioned with Annie McGrath to form a group called Street Voices. 3-part unaccompanied stuff again. We're doing it purely for fun and if anyone is free and wants to hear us for nowt, we're singing tomorrow, Sunday 4th July 10, at the Airedale Heifer, (Bradford Road, Stockbridge, KEIGHLEY) where there is a First Sunday session/singaround.

Somewhere in between 2004, when this thread started, and 2010 when it was resumed, Cockersdale did a whole week of workshops at Sidmouth Festival (? about 2006 or 2007), when we learned a pile of Keith's songs, and sang them with Val, Graham and John: they did the main parts and we, the "choir" provided the choruses mainly, tho' there were some songs we sang the whole of: this was the "Picking Sooty Blackberries" project. We finished the week with a live performance, which, as described above, included film footage and commentary, and some recordings of Keith himself. It was quite an emotional and uplifting experience for all concerned.
Also I now that Cockersdale have appeared at least a couple of times in Edinburgh, so they are known to some up here too.

My late wife, Mary LaMarca, which were smart (to paraphrase Peter Bellamy)introduced me to Cockersdale's recordings many years ago. I don't believe they're widely known in the U.S., despite our best efforts. Keith Marsden was a genius; I'll never tire of singing "Idlers and Scivers". Confoundingly, it will likely never lose its relevance.

Sure enough, there are 3 songs by Cockersdale on there - Bring us a Barrel, Prospect Providence and Even as You and I.

It has become a Middle Bar Singers (Sidmouth) "thing" that when the Funeral Song is sung, and the line comes up about sending for more chairs, all the chairs in the room get piled up into a pretty unstable pyramid in one corner of the room!
