Thanks for your continued support Harry/Jules on your podcast.
Hope you like the CD!
Grand choice (Franklin) - my fave ont album!
Makes the hairs on back on m' neck stand up, that 'un.

GenTudor's BBC folk show seems to be workin' their way thru
the album in sequence! Bless.
Last Sun night she played tracks 2 and 3 (opening track last week)
Hope she keeps going!
It's on 'listen again' BBC Radio Shropshire all this next week for any folk rock fans wantin' a listen.

Once again - cheers Banb Broll.

Oh, and did you get your copy Stateside yet Bob?

Many congratulations to the Duncan McFarlane Band for their uplifting, rip-roaring, rollicking good album.  

I love it.

I love the sleeve.  I love the complexity and the quality of the arrangments.  I love the instumentals.  I love the singalongaDunc numbers.  I love the hidden track.  Cheesy.  And I bow very deeply in the direction of the lady fiddle player's Lowlands of Holland - in fact, I kiss her hand - and I applaud the man who pulled the project off with such aplomb .  

Recently, we had a very lively discussion on 'Who's Doing Folk Rock these days?' and I bemoaned the fact that there was no band playing in the style that grabs Peel.  I wanted to hear traditional songs (or songs written with a nod in the direction of the tradition) given the full electric treatment, so that I could turn the volume up to eleven and kick off my brogues.

I've found that band.   Fez

And seeing them live, the versions are just as good as the CD, with extra zing in the form of audience interaction and participation. Just ask any of the folk shoehorned into the Ex-Servicemen's Club in Ingleton last night. Lots of singing, dancing and bonhomie. Excellent gig and it's great to be able to take the CD home to continue the party. These people know how to make good music and have FUN!

After several listens to the new CD, I can only wish I was as eloquent as Sir Bob. All I can say is "what he said"

This one is going to be on my playlist for quite a while. I initially thought Botany Bay would be the track that defined this set, but I find myself returning time and time again to Mary Read.

This is coming from someone who had never heard any of Duncan's acoustic offerings, which I am given to understand are outstanding in themselves.

Phew, glad I wasn't off topic Roll Eyes  Err Lips Sealed  I've just 'stepped' in it, haven't I Huh

It's undoubtedly a good album (cheers Dunc!), I'll need to listen to it several more times before I can do it more justice than that though.  I've not been in a folk rock mood recently Undecided

Our annual Humbug 'party' gig at Korks, Bondgate, Otley is on Fri 7th Dec this year.
8pm start, Black Sheep ale (and 'other' hand-pulled ales), three hours (or more!) music from the band.
You're all welcome - tho the venue holds just under 200, so first come.....
cheers - Duncan

I've heard a muttering that the acoustic version of the band are playing at the Otley Folk Club next Weds 24th as late replacements to the advertised guests.

That is also at Korks Wine Bar, Otley.

Arr, well, y'see...
Otley's our 'home' really.
Leccie gig booked for ages - annual bash there (for 'Humbug' - it seems - thanx for the edit)
But the folk club 'guests' there on 24th Oct have had to pull out -
so we're handily placed and eager 'substitutes' off the bench wi' th' 'acoustic' band.

Same venue - same band, wi slightly different line-up and songs - two diff dates.
There - clear as that thar dredge-mud.
Cheers - DM

 Smiley I'm still trying to wear the CD out.

December is shaping up to be a grand month - with DMcF Band gigs on 7th and 14th.
Pity you don't have a gig planned for 21st - now that WOULD be a great start to the Christmas / Humbug celebrations!.

I see that my very good friend, the Telegraphs's former journalist and best blogger in the universe, Sir Colin Randall, will review Duncan's new opus next month.

Sir Colin keeps a very good folk site - his reviews, interview and views - here:
