Echoes of Alfred

BOB and GILL BERRY


     All of us owe a huge debt of gratitude to people like Alfred Williams who recognised the value of the songs, saw that they were disappearing and made records of them before their echoes finally passed into oblivion.
As artists we have been greatly influenced by the research and singing of Len & Barbara Berry (Bob’s parents) of songs which Alfred Williams collected in Oxfordshire. This album has songs mainly from the collection, but from Wiltshire - the county that we have made our adopted home.
     Many of the songs had no tunes, so they have been adapted to fit new tunes or arranged to suit our own interpretation. We make no apologies for altering words and tunes and feel that Alfred would have ‘echoed’ our sentiments.
     The image on the album front was inspired by a line in the song “Out with my dog in the morning” which describes the joy of singing by the fireside. There is nothing better to connect us to the rural people for whom singing songs like these was an integral part of their lives and labours for hundreds of years.

Gleanings

HECTOR GILCHRIST

     Since my original introduction into the world of folk clubs and festivals getting on for 55 years now, I would have listened to hundreds of wonderful songs covering a range of genres. There is always another good song which should have been learned and incorporated into the repertoire but for various and not always good reasons, they are left out or forgotten.
     To date, I have recorded approximately 70 tracks on vinyl, cassette and C.D. and this selection adds a few more, although I make no apology for re-recording a couple of my favourites. The others I have gleaned and placed into the basket of memories.
     My grateful thanks are due to the support and encouragement of family and special friends. To Wildgoose Studio and the Baileys for this my fifth C.D on their label and to all these excellent musicians appearing on this recording who can always add more than a little bit of magic to a performance.

Roam the Country Through

JEFF WARNER

     I’ve been surrounded by traditional song for as long as I can remember. As a boy, and later as a teen, I was with my parents, Anne and Frank Warner, on some of their song-collecting trips in North Carolina and New York State’s Adirondack          Mountains. I learned first-hand the value rural singers placed on the songs passed down to them. I’m glad I got to meet people for whom old songs were their main—sometimes only—music. Some of the songs on this album I learned from the singers my parents met, some from early country music recordings and most, I see, from friends along the way who had the same love of tradition that I did. Now, I’m proud to pass them on to new friends.

     Tracks on the album are accompanied by:-
Jeff Warner: vocals, English concertina, banjo, guitar, jig-doll; Alice Jones: vocals, harmonium, piano, whistle;
Ben Paley: fiddle

Shine On

KEITH KENDRICK and SYLVIA NEEDHAM
    Vocal and instrumental music, social and ceremonial dance have all played a role in Keith Kendrick's career which has spanned nearly five decades. He looks for the best ways to communicate the inspiration that has motivated him. He has a vernacular delivery, which maintains respect for the music and combines with vocal and instrumental skills to make his performances a pleasure to listen to. If you want an example of someone for whom folk music and life have become completely inseparable - a true folk musician - look no further than Keith. His repertoire when singing with Sylvia comprises mainly English traditional and traditionally influenced contemporary songs. Both have strong voices and compatible and complimentary styles of delivery and they produce a striking acapella harmony sound. They also accompany themselves and play lively dance tunes on three different systems of the only English invented musical instrument - the Concertina.

Outway Songster

COHEN BRAITHWAITE-KILCOYNE

    Cohen is a member of Granny's Attic and is releasing his first solo album of mainly traditional songs and tunes. Cohen plays concertina and melodeon on the album as well as singing.
    In the preface to their 1893 publication English County Songs, Lucy Broadwood and J. A. Fuller Maitland describe ‘outway songsters’ who ‘not only sang favourite songs [i.e. traditional songs and popular songs of the era], but also actually invented new ones themselves.’
    The repertoire of the ‘outway songster’ certainly dominates on this album; this is a selection of some of his current ‘favourite songs’, mainly traditional with the odd Victorian popular song thrown in for good measure and one song he's 'invented' himself. Along with these songs come a few of his favourite traditional tunes of seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth century origin.

I am the Song

JIM CAUSLEY

    TIn 2013 I made an album of a selection of Charles’ poems which I had set to music to commemorate the tenth anniversary of his death. The Charles Causley Trust most kindly allowed myself along with a small group of musician friends to take over Charles’ little house ‘Cyprus Well’ for five days and record the album in his study and I got to use his very own piano too! It was a magical experience and one that I will always hold very dear.

Last year the Charles Causley Trust commissioned me to create another project using Charles poems to help celebrate the centenary of his birth, this year in 2017. I felt that I would not want to try and create a “Cyprus Well 2” and that it would not be possible even if I wanted to. So instead I was made ‘Artist in Residence’ in Cyprus Well for a week in September 2016 where I soaked up the magic of Charles’ home once again by living and sleeping in his house, exploring his home town by stepping out from his own front door and this time I wrote the music for the poems on Charles’ piano instead.

I also felt that I wanted to look at a different aspect of Charles’ work this time around and so as his ‘Collected Poems for Children’ has recently been republished I thought it would be great fun to focus on those poems. And great fun it has been too! I’ve called in lots of friends who I knew would bring their particular brand of magic and fun to the album and we have had such a huge amount of fun making it I can’t begin to tell you. I hope all the joy of Charles’ wonderful poems combined with the celebratory nature of the music comes through and brings another generation of readers to the treasure trove of Charles Causley’s work. The hardest part of this project was deciding which poems not to record! There are simply too many great ones but I’ll leave those for you to discover when you buy the book, here’s just a little taster…

The musicians are:
Nick Wyke and Becki Driscoll, Matt Norman, Jeff Gillett, Mary Humphries and Anahata & Keith Kendrick with Bandanglo.

Cyprus Well

JIM CAUSLEY

    This album is a collection of Charles Causley poems set to music and sung by me – Jim Causley. I first began setting these wonderful poems to music about seven years ago. I had grown up having them read to me and I have a distant memory of a primary school teacher holding a book in front of me and explaining that I had the same name as its author. I didn’t have any difficulty choosing which ones to set; they jumped out at me quite readily and the tunes flowed swiftly and with ease. The talented musicians who have helped me create this album found that the accompaniments flowed easily to the words and they all tied together with a keen love of Charles’ work. Recording these poems in Cyprus Well and Mount Pleasant was a very moving experience and I think all involved felt his presence throughout. If I have in any way brought new interest to Charles’ work and the continued work of the Charles Causley Trust and the Charles Causley Society then I am overjoyed. Jim Causley South Zeal, Devon - March 2013

A multi-instrumentalist with a lilting voice, she has represented Britain at the All-Ireland Fleadh many times and was also a YFA finalist at the age of fifteen. It was, therefore, a natural progression to study on the Folk and Traditional Music degree course in Newcastle. This has expanded her musical horizons even further, and helped her to explore her role in the Irish diaspora through study at the Irish World Academy of Music & Dance in Limerick.

ANNA SHANNON

    Hailing from the North Yorkshire National Park, Anna Shannon deeply embraces all things rustic. On hearing her compositions it is clear that the wonders of the natural world are the things that strongly colour her narratives. She is an immensely skilled multi-tasker, a creative and strikingly accomplished singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, arranger and designer, with her own definite, intense vision and a strong musical identity to match. Anna is carrying on a musical tradition, finding fresh meaning and relevance for us all in the old ways. Anna was born into a musical family but it wasn’t until in her early twenties that she discovered the folk scene. 2006 saw her first album “The Whale Dreaming” being released after being encouraged by winning BBC Radio “Yorkshire Songwriter of the Year”. Her latest sees her forging a strong path into the heart of today’s folk club and festival circuit.

Whether English, Irish, Scottish, French Canadian, Australian, traditional or composed, borrowed and/or adapted, they all end up with that distinctive Old Swan Band ‘stamp’.

Notes and names change, tempos and keys vary, but they all end up in the same place – on the dance floor. We hope you’ll enjoy listening to this music but our abiding wish is that you’ll roll back the carpet, get the right shoes on and shake a leg. That’s what legs are for.

Just Another Day

TOM and BARBARA BROWN

    A combination of circumstances has unintentionally brought us to Minehead, in Somerset, as the unifying factor of this, our sixth CD, and we’ve decided to make it a ‘studio album’ - following our arrangement instincts instead of just creating a copy of stage performance. Cecil Sharp collected a number of songs from two retired sea captains in the town during a series of visits between August 1904 and May 1909. Cpt. Lewis (1835-1915) gave him 26 songs, Cpt. Vickery (1842-1916) gave him 13, and we came across them while researching for the Short Sharp Shanties project. The songs were very diverse and by no means all maritime; some were rare, others common (but in interesting variants). Together they give a fascinating window into the local vernacular song repertoire at the beginning of the 20th Century. The selection on this CD includes just some of our favourites: seven from Robert Lewis and five from James Vickery.

What all the songs have in common is that they are rooted firmly in the tradition and have attracted them by both their melody and their words. They are accompanied by Jeff’s superb work on guitar, mandola and concertina and he is supported by several very talented musicians to help present the songs: Gill Redmond on cello; Becky Dellow on fiddle; Steve Tyler on hurdy-gurdy; and Katy Marchant on recorder and bagpipes.
    For this collection, Ron and Jeff have revisited some songs they have been singing for many years but which have never, previously, been available on CD. They have also included a number of songs that they have been singing for quite a while, but have never previously recorded. Finally, they have added a few songs that are quite new to their repertoire.

by Collected from John Short

    This is the third and final CD which records the repertoire of John Short – a.k.a. Yankee Jack – of Watchet, Somerset in England’s West Country, who, in 1914, gave the folk-song collector Cecil Sharp nearly sixty shanties, several in early rare versions. John spent over fifty years working in sailing boats, much of his younger days in deep-water ships, sailing all around the world as a shantyman. He was born in 1839, went to sea with his father when he was nine, went deep sea at eighteen, married and retired from the deep water trade in his mid-thirties, and died at the age of ninety-four, in 1933.

JEFF WARNER

    My association with the old songs goes back a long way. My father had me up on stage with him, singing “The Old Chisholm Trail,” when I was eight. I got taken along (of necessity) as a boy on some of their later song collecting trips to the mountains and seacoast of North Carolina and the Adirondack Mountains of New York. I'm glad I got to meet rural people for whom traditional song was their main - sometimes only - music. Some of the songs on this album are from those people I met, and got to know better through the recordings they made for my parents. All the others are out of oral tradition, although a couple of them were composed by known authors and then absorbed into the folk. I'm happy to pass them on.

She sank in the early hours of April 15th, claiming more than 1500 lives; among the dead were over 500 crew whose home was Southampton. Look Out! is the story of Titanic and Southampton, from her anticipated arrival in the town, through the despair of the tragedy, and the consequences for those left behind.
Central to the story are the crew, particularly Fred Fleet, one of the look-outs on that fateful night. He was the first to see the iceberg, and lived with the memories and repercussions for the rest of his life.

Short Sharp Shanties Vol.2

    This is the second of the three CDs which record the repertoire of John Short – a.k.a. Yankee Jack – of Watchet, Somerset in England’s West Country, who, in 1914, gave the folk-song collector Cecil Sharp nearly sixty shanties, several in early rare versions. John spent over fifty years working in sailing boats, much of his younger days in deep-water ships, sailing all around the world as a shantyman. He was born in 1839, went to sea with his father when he was nine, went deep sea at eighteen, married and retired from the deep water trade in his mid-thirties, and died at the age of ninety-four, in 1933. Sung by: Jim Mageean, Jeff Warner, Keith Kendrick, Jackie Oates, Roger Watson, Sam Lee, Brian Willoughby, Tom Brown, Barbara Brown, Doug Bailey.

Swan for the Money

THE OLD SWAN BAND

    The Old Swan Band as you expect to hear them. Ian Anderson, writing in fRoots magazine, described The Old Swan Band as ‘a well oiled machine’, qualifying it with the additional comment ‘in more ways than one’. True, the band was born in a Cheltenham pub called The Old Swan (for a time an Irish theme pub and now just The Swan) and the band members are often to be found adding their considerable musical weight to English tune sessions in pub back rooms, but ‘well oiled’ must refer to the band’s ability to reach deep into the often hidden vein of English dance repertoire and pull out a gem of a tune which will be delivered to the world in distinctive style. This style is typified by driving fiddles and harmonica, fat brass, persistent and inventive percussion, all glued together with rhythmic and sweet piano. Whether applied to a newly researched tune or to an old favourite, the Old Swan sound is unmistakable.

Dumnonia

JIM CAUSLEY

    The album will include accompaniments from members of The Dartmoor Pixie Band, Nick Wyke and Becki Driscoll as well as Jeff Gillett. The kingdom of Dumnonia was the ancient home of the Dumnonii, the Celtic tribal people who lived in this part of the South West peninsula before, during and after the period when the Romans popped by to visit for a chilly winter holiday. It is where the modern county of Devon derives its name and a large chunk of its cultural identity. This album is an expression of Devonshireness as I feel it; with people who were around me at the time, no border checkpoints, nobody pushed out, just what it is.

Look Both Ways

GEORGE PAPAVGERIS

    Forward and astern. Traditional and modern. Strange and familiar. Night and day. Near and distant. Old and new. East and West. Young and old. Multiple perspectives, each with their validity yet each also limited in the view they can afford. And still many of us cling desperately to one or the other pretending to be seeing some universal Truth that excludes others. Most of my adult life I tried to fight such tendencies within myself, a fight that I will no doubt lose one day as ideas harden to keep pace with the arteries. But meanwhile I soldier on, always looking for new recruits to take up the cause of observing ourselves from the outside and smiling (lovingly, always lovingly) at our anthropocentric veneer of self-importance. Who will take my shilling?

MAGGIE SANDS and SANDRAGON

    It was the making of this album (Maggie's fourth and the first for WildGoose records in England) that lead to the formation of Sandragon. Malcolm Bennett took over from Will on woodwinds, and Will Hughes from Anthar on percussion. On this album, you have all six of them. The album demonstrates the band's trademark blend of traditional songs and hi-energy dance tunes from the medieval and Renaissance eras. The dragon is the symbol which is found in both the English traditional tales of "St George & the Dragon", and the mythological dragon legends of medieval times.

Dusty Diamonds

Martin & Shan Graebe
    For this, our second CD together, we have mined the collections of Sabine Baring-Gould and Cecil Sharp, for these little gems. Some of the songs are presented here for the first time since they were collected. Many are variants of songs that are well known but we feel that the differences give them freshness and renewed charm. The songs we have chosen are mainly from the South-West of England, particularly Devon, though Cornwall is well represented. There are also two songs written by Martin.

Beyond the Quay

Tom & Barbara Brown

    A wide range of songs - long, short and tall all with a touch of the briny about them - but not a shanty in sight. It has a distinctly maritime leaning and also revisits some songs that have been in our repertoire for many years. We've also, again, taken the opportunity to work with some additional performers we admire: Keith Kendrick makes a welcome return he hasn't been able to make any of our recordings since Where Umber Flows and it's been a delight to work with the Askew sisters, Emily and Hazel, (whose combined ages are less then either of us!) who are a formidable duo in their own right, both singing and playing, and who have their own CD with Wild Goose.

Pride of the Season

Jack Crawford
    This collection of songs, my interpretations of them and the way I deliver them are all rooted in the rich and fertile soil of the English folk tradition. Nevertheless, I freely acknowledge the many other influences that have shaped, and continue to shape, my singing. When researching these songs I have found that they have no respect for borders. Here you will find a few from Scotland, Ireland and Newfoundland, though most would comfortably withstand being called English. Although I generally sing alone and unaccompanied, this CD is not a solo venture.

Very few are found in other sources, and from their titles, many appear to be the work of local musicians. Four manuscripts bear the signatures of John Jones (dated1801), James Blackshaw (1837), Richard Hughes (1823) and Albert John Hughes (undated).

Life's Eyes

George Papavgeris
    What is different in Life's Eyes is that there is a quiet confidence appearing in his writing, which is audible in the subtlety of the tunes, no longer aiming to surprise with elaborate arrangements but just as memorable. And the same confidence is evident also in George's singing the best he has ever been. “Regrets” is probably the finest example of his mature and seasoned delivery. Augmented sparsely but tellingly by Vicki Swan and Jonny Dyer (in the guise of George's itinerant Los Marbles) both in voice and on an assortment of guitars, bass, flute, small-pipes, whistle, keyboards and accordion settings

On 'Lost Love Found' we find Causley's vocals the most experimental to date ranging from a warm, soft whisper to the gravelly, bluesy tones of Tom Waits. Accompanied by his dextrous accordion playing, Causley builds on his collaborative work with multi-instrumentalist James Dumbelton and on several tracks they are joined by guest musicians James Delarre of Mawkin, Sandra Kerr and George Papavgeris.

The choice of material is wide and varies from very modern singer songwriter to Scottish traditional but it all makes good listening. The title of this CD is taken from the name of his boyhood home in Coylton, Ayrshire and is a tribute to his parents who loved singing.

Songs from the Derbyshire Coast

Keith Kendrick
    Songs with a Maritime Bias. Keiths tastes in traditional music have always been diverse and eclectic including: English song and dance in general but increasingly concentrating on Derbyshire versions; maritime songs and shanties; and the occasional contemporary song written in traditional style. All of these styles are reflected here. There are some very meaningful and serious items and also some lighter pieces just for fun but always with a strong leaning towards the maritime; hence the title of the album

Bitter Sweet

In this, our somewhat eclectic collection of songs, we hope to convey the range of music that we love and wish to share.

Hampshire Dance Tunes

Various Musicians
    Dance tunes from a village musician's book 1822. In Winchester Records Library, there is a manuscript book, ref. 210M87/1. The title page has R Pyle 19th January 1822 written in decorated script. The book contains 171 secular tunes, largely country dance tunes with a few airs and song accompaniments, and a few psalm and hymn settings in the back. It thus reinforces the classic idea we have of an English village musician, someone who plays for dances and in the church on Sundays.
