SUNDAY FOR SAMMY 2012. Many thanks for sending me the Sunday for Sammy DVD so quickly. This is a highly entertaining, amusing and well produced DVD. In addition, the three fantastic songs performed by the excellent Joe McElderry make it essential viewing for his many fans. Jo O
Alex Glasgow - Northern Drift & Joe Lives My CD of Northern Drift and Joe Lives! arrived this morning - many thanks for the speedy service, it's much appreciated. Many years ago I had a LP version of Joe Lives! and really enjoyed John Woodvine's performance. Sadly, somewhere along the way in various house moves and de-clutterings it went astray and I thought it was gone for good. I had not been able to find a new copy in any format anywhere. But just the other day I was prompted to do a new Google search for John Woodvine and Joe Lives! and found your firm and all your marvellous material, and there it was, hence my order. I am very pleased to have a fresh new copy of Joe Lives! It's playing now as I type this message. I'm trying not to sing along too loud... As an expat-Geordie I'll be coming back for more of your recordings. Best regards Alan T

The Owen Brannigan Story DVD Sir, 79years, ex-geordie, ex GP, may I say how much I enjoyed your DVD about Owen Brannigan. The accompanist interviewed was superb. But why no mention of Ernest Lush? Their "Friday Night" recitals were superb. Clever, witty, superbly professional, etc. Regards, James B

Review

Pete Fyfe - www.folking.com - 24/09/2002
The North-East of England has been established in folk music circles for many years represented by such great bands as Lindisfarne, Jack The Lad and Hedgehog Pie. Now a new name can be added to this illustrious roster.

The Hush boasts the vocal talents of Bob Fox, and an awesome line-up of Jed Grimes (ex-Hedgehog Pie) on guitars and bouzouki, Garry Linsley (saxophones), Graham Wood (piano), Paul Smith (drums) and Neil Harland on bass. Drawing material from the rich seam of traditional ('Here's The Tender Coming' and 'The Snow It Melts Te Soonest') and contemporary songs from their native area, the band have managed to capture fresh sounding arrangements that will appeal to the widest possible audience.

Exploring a diverse array of rhythms including reggae and jazz or the region's own indigenous timing of 3/2 the band's sound is vibrant without being over the top. The scene has been lacking an 'original' folk-rock sound for some time and considering the title of the band, The Hush have more than enough to shout about! By the way, when are we going to see the Hedgehog Pie albums released on CD?
