In 2004 I stumbled upon Malinky & Flook, although I am well aware that they have both been going for a few years, I managed to miss them constantly! (Not intentionally you understand!)

But in 2004 I had the pleasure of being acquainted(?) with Emily Smith, she has a voice that is something else!

From the small flood of CDs which I listened to just before Christmas, I would have to nominate Pete Smith & John Buckley (a pair of classy pickers), and Tegwen Roberts & Martin Harwood (maybe not folk in the trad sense, but a promising singer-songwriter). Both are featured this week on www.theacousticstage.net (plug over...)

I am so glad to find this thread. The group I found in 2004 is Hobotalk. They are Scottish and have a wonderful acoustic folky sound.

http://www.hobotalk.com/introduction.htm

I am not so adept at the blue clicky thing, but that is the website. There are three full length downloads on the sight. For those of you in Scotland, try to go see them. I am looking forward to March of 2005 when they will be in the US. Hope to get to see them in person.

Julie was supported by a singer/songwriter called Madeleine Brooks at Hebden Bridge Trades Club earlier this year.

How impressed where we? Well to give you a clue:

26 March
City Screen, York
Julie Ellison with special guest Madeleine Brooks

12 April
The Melborn Hotel, Bradford
Julie Ellison with special guest Madeleine Brooks

There was also a featured support at her Topic FC gig at the Melborn in Bradford. A duo called "Lyte Flyte" - they really impressed us.

I recorded their set for them and have just finished mixing and mastering it - and haven't stopped listening to it since - which says an awful lot.

Outside of "work" ...

I saw Tommy Emmanual at Leeds. Very impressed by his abilities as a guitarist (who wouldn't be) but very disapointed with his choice of material. He does mainly covers and his selection and arrangement of tunes plays to the mass market - brings "hooked on classics" to mind far too readily. That said he fills theatres and Julie attracts 40ish people per gig - so maybe I'm in the wrong. Although, if we had to resort to doing "hooked on classics" to get the audience bigger I think we would either stop or decide we already had enough.

I went to a Demon Barbers Session at the Love Apple in Bradford and urge everyone within driving distance of the Curry Capital to go. A fantastic night with the Denny Bartley and Jon Gomm really making a stunning evening.

Denny Bartley - who I've already admired for a long time for his work with Last Nights Fun - was fantastic as a solo artist although extremely nervous - he should do more solo work.

Jon Gomm was his magical self - although not folk, anyone who wants to see what an acoustic guitar (plus assorted pedals) can do should see this man. Fantastic stuff.

The Demon Barbers were brilliant and (sorry Duncan) edged ahead of the Dunc. McFarlane band in the "who can make traddy stuff exciting for me to listen to" stakes.

Best regards
John Robinson

Jed Marum.

Peggy and I caught his act when he came to our town earlier this year. Jed was the first Mudcatter I met in person, which was nice, and his music was (is) great.

Also, it was a personal inspriation for me to meet a "born-again" performer, someone making his living as a musician after half a lifetime raising kids and toiling at a day job, etc. Bravo!

Ooo, shame on you John!

'The Demon Barbers were brilliant and (sorry Duncan) edged ahead of the Dunc. McFarlane band in the "who can make traddy stuff exciting for me to listen to" stakes.'

Are you suggesting there can be only 'one' (Highlander style!)
Edged ahead? Gosh - is it a competition?
Surely you should be celebrating and shouting from the highest that there are now TWO folk-rock outfits that you've seen recently that can 'do it' for you?
I hope you don't run into any other excellent female guitarist/singers! Who will fight Julie's cause then?
(Only joking John!)
And only today I've been staunchly defending the Demons over a review of the same concert you were at - you better take a look at leedsmusicscene.net John. I had to pitch in as the reviewer was a tad out of kilter. Let me know when you've seen it - perhaps you might wish to contribute too. The review is of John Gomm...but....
Hugs to you and Julie - D

Dunc - I did say "edged" ;-) And no it isn't a competition in the negative sense of the word - but in the positive where competition is healthy and helps develop the genre.

Yes it's great that there are two bands who can get someone like me listening to trad/trad-style music - when I am about as far from being a hardened traddie as you can get ... well except for the guy who reviewed the Barbers session.

Speaking of which - I brought the Leeds Music Scene review to Damon's attention but I've been up to my neck in studio work since and - as I warned him at the time - I haven't had time to contribute a more balanced review. Hope lots of others have had the chance to do so.

For those who haven't seen the original review, here is a snippet - bear in mind that the lead singer from the Barbers is from Norwich and the dancers are cloggers .....

"As a guest at the "Demon Barber sessions" one must first endure some traditional folk music involving Irish accents and leg flailing dancers at the front of the stage. But I won't go into detail about these bands mainly because I had no desire to see them and felt slightly out of place, like an Iron Maiden fan at a Corrs show."

Lots of luverly references to folk = Irish and folk rock = The Corrs

Mind you, the Corrs edge ahead of the Dunc McF. Band in the looks department ...

Best regards

Oooh! I've just found this thread!!!

I've been raving over on the Radio 2 board about The Duncan McFarlane Band recently! I've got their 'Woodshed Boys' CD and I'm completely addicted! ;0)

I've also got Duncan's solo 'Bed of Straw'CD, the title song of which I can't stop singing....even the kids are going around saying "Rally round..come listen to me!"

Personally John....I'd have to say that the DMcF Band are MUCH better looking than those Corrs Girlies! Honestly...you Boysies! ;0) We watched their Dublin concert the other day...The Corrs, not Duncan! ....the place was filled with tens of thousands of people and about 90% of them were Boysies! Well!!! And Andrea Corr was flirting with EVERY SINGLE one of them. Never seen so many Ecstatic Boysies in one place! The power of a woman....to be able to hold so many Boys in her hand like that! ;0)

Well....I'm off to listen to Canadee-i-o now, my favourite 'Woodshed Boys' track...and try to work out how I can move The West Country closer to Leeds so that I can see Duncan's band live one day!

By the way....John...went over to Julie Ellison's site yeterday, at last!, and was really impressed with her voice. Beautiful...on a parr with Angie Palmer....and you know what Angie Palmer did to me!! ;0) Will go and tell those Radio 2 Mizzies all about her shortly!

I saw Jim down in The Anchor bar in Sidmouth about two weeks ago, with all the Middle Bar Singers at their Sidmouth Reunion and he sang 'Eldorado' and I went 'Ping!' just like I did when I put The Duncan McFarlane Band's 'Woodshed Boys' CD on and 'Bring 'em Down' burst into my ears!

Jim McAdams sang that song utterly from deep inside his heart. It was a treasure to watch, to hear....and I've locked it inside my head for evermore! Wonderful!
