Who are they?
They are Alan Harvey, Kevin Moffat and Anne Bowden – three musicians in Warwickshire with a passion for folk music.
They play a mixture of songs they write themselves plus covers from acts such as Show of Hands, Seth Lakeman, Tom Waites and others.
Kevin is writing particularly prolifically at the moment, partly due to his monthly ‘challenge’ from the Coventry Singer Songwriters. Some of his attempts turn out really well and the band politely ignore the rest. You can hear some of the better ones on their website.
Alan: Lead Vocals, Bodhran
Kevin: Guitar, Cajon, Vocals
Anne: Flute, Whistle, Cello, Vocals
As well as playing instruments, their repertoire includes some unaccompanied, three-part harmony songs.
