Joan Lyr ADD: My Lady of Autumn (Dave Webber) (35) RE: Lyr Req: Lady of Autumn 17 Feb 00


Beggar's Velvet was made up of Dave Webber, his wife, Anni Fentiman, plus another couple who are no longer a couple. I once asked Dave about the name of the group, and he says beggar's velvet is a euphemism for the dust balls you find under the bed. (I refer to those as schmemfs)

Anni and Dave perform together now, with the same sort of tight harmony singing and Dave's dynamite voice. They have a web site that you can check out, and some amazing CDs. Dave writes songs "in the tradition" and they're all well done--couldn't begin to choose a "most favorite."

Johnny Collins has been a close friend of theirs for a long time, sometimes part of each others' recordings.
