Tony Rees A repository for your music pictures... (46) RE: A repository for your music pictures... 02 Dec 18

Hi Ray and Modette, thanks for chiming in...

Ray, from my recollection the three Americans on tour (Keith, Rooney and O'Connor) played with a local rhythm section (2nd mandolin and bass). I remember thinking the second mandolinist was very good but not American - so still waiting... The BBC broadcast around 20 mins of their set which I have on my shelf, great stuff with Mark O'Connor on absolutely the top of his form - his fiddling on "Footprints in the Snow" is sublime. (I think I recorded it off Australian radio though!)

I too have a number of photos of a young(er) Tony Rees playing guitar but am not about to post them!

Modette/others, someone must know about the dancers and accompanists, we will see... and thanks for spotting the typo, I have fixed it on the 5 original photos and the change will propagate through the system. Actually I had never heard of Porchester Hall before I went there in '85, and never heard of it again until now; nowadays with Google images and Wikipedia it all comes back!

I could also do with names for the lineup of Paddington's Pandemonic Express shown as well - I know Sam Stephens, Ralph Jordan, Caroline Frost (last 2 sadly no longer with us); I think one of the others is Dan Quinn (?next to Ralph); I have half an idea the drummer was Sue Evans-Taylor? From another thread the other melodion player is probably Trevor Bennett, perhaps the brass player is Nigel Carter? Since I did not know those folk or the rest of the band personally, I need others' assistance.

Best - Tony
