Wednesday 8th May 2019 - NOTTS ALLIANCE - at Faversham Folk Club, The Limes

Notts Alliance
7.30      Ticket Price £8 / £9

We are an unaccompanied harmony group with material from the folk tradition and thereabouts who have gained a reputation for tight and inventive harmony singing.

Our repertoire includes arrangements of songs from some of the best of today’s songwriters including Richard Thompson, Pete Morton, Maggie Holland as well as a good helping of traditional material.

Regulars at many clubs and festivals, we released "Out of the Darkness" in 1997 to enthusiastic reviews.

In 1999 we recorded several songs for the transportation section of the "Galleries of Justice" museum in Nottingham.

Our second album "Nothing Spoken" came out in 2003 - the title was taken from a featured Pete Morton song.

The third album, Faithful Heart came out in June 2008

The latest (Aug 2013) album is "On the Doorstep". It was produced by John Adams and recorded by Jon Loomes at his studio in Ripponden.

We think that it is our best work to date and it's had favourable reviews. Baz Parkes in English Dance & Song said "On the Doorstep is an object lesson in how a recording of unaccompanied singing should sound... the harmonies are stunning." Pete James on 103fm said it was "a wonderful choice of songs.. all superbly sung and recorded", while Dave Sutherland writing in the Tigerfolk newsletter said "another collection of high quality, well thought out close harmonies.. guaranteed to encourage the listener to seek out the next live performance."
