Bob and Gill Berry

January 29th: Bob and Gill Berry

Bob & Gill Berry are stalwarts of the West Country and the English folk scene,and have been instrumental in maintaining the folk tradition.Aside from running Devizes folk club and the annual Chippenham Folk Festival,Bob & Gill are regular performers in folk clubs and folk festivals. Last year they released their latest CD "Echoes of Alfred",containing songs greatly influenced by the research and singing of Len & Barbara Berry (Bob's parents) of songs which Alfred Williams collected in Oxfordshire. The album has songs mainly from the collection,but from Wiltshire-the county that they have made their adopted home. Many of the songs had no tunes,so they have been adapted to fit new tunes or arranged to suit their own interpretation.They make no apologies for altering words and tunes and feel that Alfred would have 'echoed'their sentiments.

The Yirdbards

February 26th: The Yirdbards

The Yirdbards lead singer Paul Darby first came to prominence in the early 70s as one half of the duo Windfall,and over ensuing years he used his musical talent to raise thousands of pounds for Greenpeace,in the 80s he became frontman for R&B band Dubious Brothers,but more recently returned to his love of acoustic music.I sing he says,because it gives me pleasure.With the Yirdbards line up of cello and acoustic guitars,there's more space for inimacy and subtlety.It's more intricate.I just hope that people will be moved by our music.
