A friend is trying to find out which day Ralph will be performing at the Great British Folk Festival.  She's had no luck from his website, FB or Twitter. Does anybody know another way to find out? Thanks.


Ralph's website is now showing it as Friday 30 November.

The only track is 'Streets of London'. Side 2 is uncut. It's a promotional issue for the US release of 'You Well Meaning Brought Me Here'.

Whereas, as we all know, Roger Whittaker’s version wasn’t a hit until 1974...  Wink

The November 2019 (issue 498) of Record Collector magazine includes a short quarter page (page 54) interview with Ralph, and on page 112 a short review of the Hill of Beans CD

Jude Rogers interviewed Ralph & Tony Visconti ahead of the RFH show next month - where Tony is again playing the recorder - and talked bout Tony producing Ralph's new CD & their history over a double page spread in yesterday's Culture section of the Sunday Times.

Unfortunately, online, it's behind a paywall....

But it's a good read for those that bought the paper....

The Sunday Times article.  Would I be allowed to post the article on here?

[ Saw Show of Hands last week and they made reference to touring as Ralph's support act.  When they talked about the time before those days, they called them Pre Ralphelite   Wink ]

You can sign up for a Times account for free - only allows you access to view two articles a week but they are of your choice so will enable you to read the interview.
