As I went down to Horsham

 

Mabs & Gordon Hall

(click on the artistes name to see a photo and /or a short biography)

 

The Hall family home was a singing house and here we have two generations of the family. Mabs learned many of her songs from her parents and her son Gordon was always intrigued by his mother’s ‘quaint old songs’. He realised how important they were and learned many himself.
 

These are two fine traditional folk singers who together sing a remarkable selection of songs from Victorian children’s singing games to ancient ballads. More of Mabs and Gordon can be heard on the following Veteran CDs: VTC1CD  VTC4CD  VTC5CD & VT131CD
