A Tribute to The Waterson Family of Hull
In London 1963 two sisters, a brother & a good family mate electrified the English folk scene when they appeared at The Troubadour Folk Club in Earls Court. Four young people singing songs a capella from their home county of Yorkshire. The audience was gobsmacked and saw them go on to be a driving force in the Second Folk Revival between the 1960s & 80s.
Their songs were first heard in Australia in Sydney in 1965 & within months groups emulating their style sprang up around the country.
The Fagans & Spooners will take you back to those wonderful days of full throated choruses, kaleidoscopic harmonies & lots of audience participation.
