Where ? lol

By coincidence, they were mentioned on 'The Chase' today.
The guy hadn't heard of them  ::)

They have played Winding Wheel many times over the years.

Never seen them but saw former member Richard Thompson last year who was very good.

Other connection is that Sandy Denny played with Fairport and also  my most watched group (Strawbs.) Sadly she died in 1978 after an accident.

You should try Strawbs then who sometimes play as 5 piece rock band and other times as 3 piece acoustic. Played Chestefield a few times but nearest this tour is Derby. Some clips on my YouTube (Spywriter)

Glad you mentioned your YouTube Andy.  I'll be looking up The Strawbs.  Thanks for that  :)
