Its a great CD. I especially like their version of Bob Dylan's Lay Down Your Tune.
The launch concert is at the Middlecott School Boston on Friday 14th and all proceeds are for Macmillan Cancer Relief.
I wonder if I can guess guests identity?......

This brilliant Lincolnshire duo, famous for Bill's dour sense of humour are performing in Nottingham (Carrington Triangle Folk Club, Loscoe Road) on Wed 19th Nov & will have their new CD with them. Having posession of their previous 2 excellent CDs, I will certainly be dipping into my pocket for what is bound to be another great gem.

Not at the "do" myself, but I saw them several times this year and if they were as good as every time I saw them then the audience will have had a real treat.

I am just listening to the new cd, another treat.

We should have gone to the launch but found it was an awfully long way from Saddleworth unfortunately, so we've sent off a cheque for the CD. Can't wait to get it - we think they're excellent, so we've booked them for Saddleworth.

Banjo-Flower, I wondered who you were! Got it now - your secret's out! And WHO IS GUEST??? Anyone know?

BTW everybody, buy the damn CD - Bill and Dave are SUPERSTARS. What are they doing playing little clubs for peanuts when talentless pillocks like Gareth Sodding Gates and the Gallagher brothers play stadia for millions? There's no justice!

Just my Humble Opinion. I'm going to lie down now.

Ali - You can put me down for a ticket for Saddleworth if you've booked Bill and Dave. We've got them at Four Fools as well earlier in the year. The path from Lincolnshire to Lancashire is well trodden by these two!

Cheers

I too went to the recent concert to witness the launch of Bill Whaley and Dave Fletcher's New Album " Less Sprightly " ,an occasion made doubly important in that all proceeds were going to MacMillan Cancer Relief fund , a cause dear to Dave and his many friends (esp. Colin )...

Point 1.   I dont really like traditional folk music.
Point 2.   I do now!!!

After the warm ups provided by Martin WR and John Conolly, I was blown away by Bill and Dave , especially in the sheer variety of songs in their set. Brilliant. Buy a copy of their album "Less Sprightly" or suffer mediocrity for the remaining duration of your eardrums.   MIKE

Gerry,
The red drape jacket fell apart at the seams (I guess I sweat pure acid!) so was consigned to the bin! I miss playing the old R&R, but I DON'T miss carrying tons of PA., amps, guitars, keyboards, drums and lights in and out of venues.
Cheers,

Yes - John Conolly named "Old Men Sing Love Songs" after the title of the previous CD and the jury's out on whether someone's now going to write a new song called "Less Sprightly"...

It was a great pleasure to see Bill and Dave again at the Maypoles to Mistletoe concert at C# house yesterday. Pity the audience wasn't very big, but that was their loss (the ones who didn't turn up) - the performers had a great time!

I'd better give my new copy of the CD a spin now. I know I'm going to enjoy it.

It was on the fifth of August, the weather fair and fine,
Unto Brigg Fair I did repair; for love I was inclined.
Brigg Fair sung by Joseph Taylor

On the fifth day of August, not a cloud in the sky.
But summer has ended and winter is nigh.
Old men sing love songs written by John Conolly

'Follow The Drum' was Bill 'n' Dave'e entry for the 2002 Lincolnshire Song Contest, and some of us reckon it should've won - it was the best song by a mile. And IMHO their performance of it on the Finals Night was also by far the best of the evening, should have won the Performance Prize. The judges must have had cloth ears.

The new CD is great - I'll be playing a track from it on Sounds of Folk next week. Although many of the songs are contemporary, I think Bill and Dave perform them in a traditional style. I really like the one which was written by Ian from LocTup Together, but can't remember the title.

Definitely not Gerry but I have been known to wear a sarong (but not in public). No I'm not David Beckham either.
I agree that "Come the Day" is a fine song with great words and young William sings it as well as anything he has done for years!
But what do people think of the inclusion of the midi concertina?
