Nick Drake

We both share a love for the music of Nick Drake. In summer 2015 we were lucky enough to play at the Nick Drake Gathering at Tanworth in Arden where Nick lived with his family. There is  a Friday evening session in the village hall. We played Clothes of Sand in St Mary Magdalene Church on the Saturday. It’s a beautiful church where Nick has rested since his untimely death in 1974.

River Man

We have added River Man to our repertoire and have recorded a video which is the first to be added to our new site.

Clothes of Sand

This is our cover of Clothes of Sand. It says something about the quality of Nick’s three studio albums that this song didn’t make it onto those albums. Luckily for us it appeared on the posthumous Made to Love Magic. It sent a shiver through me when I first heard it and I wanted to learn to play it right then.
