The Genius of Les Barker

Just noticed this one on the web while doing some updating of the site.

On the last night of our cloudstreet gigs at Shrewsbury Folk Festival this year, Nic lost her voice.  This presented some significant issues for us.  Out of the hat came a song that we'd recorded for Les Barker a few months before, his parody of many ballads, Mrs Groves.  It being a feature of modern life that everything you do will be filmed by somebody, this rare solo performance (with words being read off sheets held up by five people in the front row, hence John's erratic movements) found its way to Youtube.  

It would be wrong not to share...


(with thanks to Ken.)
