Holystone reviewed in Taplas magazine...

The lastest edition of Taplas includes a review of our debut album, Holystone. Here's an extract:

"Of the 10 tracks on their first CD, three are traditional songs, Newfoundland, The Blind Harper and a great version of Lord Franklin, and seven are self-penned...Their songwriting shows real talent. San Jose, from the standpoint of one of the trapped Chilean miners, is quite brilliant."

Thanks to Keith Hudson and David Hawkridge for the positive write-up!

Album review in Taplas magazine...

The latest edition of Taplas magazine (The Voice of folk in Wales and the Borders) includes a review of the BC debut album, Holystone.  There's no online edition, so we'll post some quotes here shortly...



We are included in the upcoming podcast from this year's Bromyard Folk Festival.  It's not on the festival site yet, but you can click here for a listen - it's the top one listed.  We play "All Is Well" just after 20 minutes into the podcast and there's an interview after the song. Enjoy!

Cheers, BC.


Burgled at Bromyard...

We're not long returned from a good weekend of folkiness at Bromyard Folk Festival.  It's a great little fest with a 44 year history, no less!

Cree had recovered from his inverted eardrum just in time, but the scales of fortune tipped the other way and Barlow had his wallet rifled - they actually got into the sleeping compartment of his tent and snaffled his dosh while he slept!  Cheeky monkeys nicked the gig fee, the CD takings and his spending money; but there were plenty of left over scraps in the litter bins so he didn't go hungry!

We played three 30 minute sets, one on the second stage and two in the Falcon Mews in the town.  The latter were unplugged, which presented a few challenges given that it was quite a large room, but we wrose to these and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.  It was lovely to have people singing along to Lord Franklin and All Is Well - this is rapidly becoming the norm!  We also introduced this largely English audience to a little folkloric Welsh delight with Mallt-y-Nos and The Devil And The Cobbler.

Our THANKS to Dick for having us and to Ali and Kelly for a great job with the sound on Friday night!

The last in the current run of gigs is Rumney Folk Festival in Cardiff this weekend.  We're due on stage at about 8:45 p.m. on Saturday, for a 45 minute set just before the ceilidh.  Check out the club website for more info - here.

Cheers, BC
