'All the Best'
As heard at Faversham Hop Festival 2002
Shelagh Bradley (Kate's mum) wrote :
"Beau can I interest you in promoting an amazing Flemish band
"They play traditional tunes on
traditional instruments (Pipes, Fiddle, Accordion, Mandolin, Hurdy-Gurdy,
Nyckelharpa) which have been amplified, as well as electric bass and guitar.
Their singer is a lovely young lass with a powerful pair of lungs and they
are a very pleasant and talented bunch of blokes."
Well I saw them at Favesham Hop Festival - 9 people on stage and more than
20 instruments - "some young, some not so young" to quote Jack Pound -
no I mean the instruments -
I had to ask about some of them, from fiddle-hurdy crosses
to optically keyed pipes driving a sampled synthesizer. Brilliant music,
the floor was full of dancers, top quality sound.
They were back again in 2003 - most welcome and highly appreciated.
There is a
double CD of their music if you'd like to hear them,
