Dita Remember Hadden Rothfield & Carr? Barley? (19) RE: Does anyone remember these two groups? 08 Jan 06

I remember Jane and Alan, playing the same Scottish folk clubs and festivals as I did with Diggery Venn in the late 70s, and early 80's. They were unusual in that their sets were split between Jane's old-timey tunes and Appalachian songs and Alan's Northeast Scots songs and ballads, but they worked naturally together in both styles. Alan's "The Gray Cock" was particularly memorable.

They recorded and album called "There & Back" in Scotland in 1983 for Temple Records (TP011) as a duo, and a second one with Mamie in the mid eighties (sorry no details, would guess for Highway or Green Linnet).

A nice couple, good company, like many bands, your paths cross for a few years, you become friends then move on, and if it wasn't for the internet..............
Jane's sister Susie, also a singer and fiddler, played and recorded with the "Any Old Time String Band".
