It was so good to return to live performance recently at Beardy Folk Festival. And to commemorate what was a fantastic event, here’s some photos of the day taken by Fine Lines photographer-in-chief Trevor Palin. Head over to our GALLERY page for the full selection.
We’re delighted to bring you our latest single ‘Del Rio’. Taken from the forthcoming album ‘Deadbeat Lullabies’, the track is another Boardman/Radcliffe composition and was produced by Jake Evans at Big Red studios in Macclesfield Cheshire. The original lyric was almost 30 years old but was set to music two years ago by David whilst on holiday in Spain. Although the original inspiration was Mirador Del Rio, a beauty spot in Lanzarote, it more closely evokes the lonestar state of Texas with keening pedal steel and country fiddle! We recently filmed an accompanying video with Neil McCartney of Merry Hell behind the lens. We hope you enjoy it!
This Sunday (2nd May) we are delighted to bring you our live set recorded at The Edge Studios near Capesthorne Hall in the heart of the Cheshire countryside. This series of livestreams has been organised by studio owner and renowned sound engineer John Delf and it was a privilege to be invited to record there and work with such a talented crew. Our 40 minute set gave us an opportunity to present some of the new songs from the forthcoming album Deadbeat Lullabies including King of the Three Streets and next single Del Rio in amongst some old favourites. Hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed recording it. Tickets go on sale via this link at 7pm.
We were absolutely delighted that two songs from our live session recorded at The Edge Studios in Cheshire were featured on SKY TV Showcase Channel 191 last Sunday April 25th! The show was episode four in a thirteen part series presented by our very own Mark Radcliffe and featuring the cream of the nation’s undiscovered musical talent. If you missed it, it is being repeated this Saturday (May 1st) at 1pm. And don’t forget to catch our full set which goes out as a livestream on Sunday 2nd May – details to follow!
Here’s a little teaser of a performance we filmed a while back at The Edge Recording Studio in Cheshire. The full set will be available soon as a pay per view live stream. Stay tuned for all the details…
