               MUSICAL TRADITIONS CLUB     SPRING  2007   


Friday 16th March


Ed was best known as the melodeon player in The Bismarcks dance band for a long time, but is now building a parallel reputation as a fine singer. His material is drawn from a broad range, ancient and modern, English and borrowings from further a-field. The songs themselves are the most important aspect of the performance and Ed’s accompaniment and vocal style are relaxed and uncluttered.  The songs are of a wide variety and though there may be slayings and sorcery, there are also love and laughs.

Mike Yates writes of Ed's CD " Narrative" (mainly ballads ) ,Fellside FECD 185 , "with each playing I find myself liking it more and more".

                 With The Posh Band (Simon Ritchie, Ed Caines & Ken Lees)


Friday 20th April  Jeff Warner
Jeff Warner has been around traditional song all his life and it shows in the respect
and skill with which he interprets the songs . His parents, Anne and Frank Warner, were two of the most important folk song collectors of the 20th century. With warmth, humour and understated scholarship, Jeff Warner connects 21st century audiences with the music and everyday lives of 19th century people.  A fine guitarist and banjo player, he presents musical traditions from North Carolina, from the lumber camps of the Adirondack mountains and the whaling ports of New England.

With  Will Duke & Dan Quinn and Blues from Simon Hindley
