Brothers at Walthamstow Folk
Our pal James Fagan who
regulars will know from his work with The Melrose Quartets and
alongside his wife Nancy Kerr has teamed up with fellow Antipodean Jamie McClennan.
Drawing from the
folk, blues and bluegrass that inspired them, the Brothers' repertoire
includes such songs as The Voyage Of The Buffalo, an up-tempo NZ ballad
written in the 1800s about a convict transporting timber ship and
Poison Train - a song by Mick O'Rourke about the closure of
Australia's rural railways that James learned from his father.
All performed with
the effortless virtuosity we have come to expect.
For Fagan and McClennan this
is about bringing their distinct Antipodean-steeped folk to a new
audience, with songs and tunes brought to life by a fraternal bond
between two very silly, but captivatingly gifted musicians.
