Muskett was lucky to be around in those heady days when record companies paid for studio time, students got grants, gigs were plenty and someone had to sit on the engine.
Fast forward (remember that?) 36 years to 2010 and the same, not too rusty, Muskett ‘reloads’ at the Aspinall Arms in Clitheroe. It didn’t make the front pages but the room was full, it was great fun, so why not?
The never-ending Tourette rumbles on with the band getting out there again in November.
Once again we’ll be covering a few miles with dates from the North West to the South East via the East Midlands.
Before we start there will the usual get-together in the wilds of Lincolnshire to finalise the master plan. There may possibly be a new song, and perhaps the odd old one to add to the mix. Whilst there will also be recording a session for Jono Brine’s Folk Show on BBC Radio Lincolnshire. Welcome back Jono!
On Thursday 8th November we appear alongside Jacqui McShee’s Pentangle at ‘Song for Lincolnshire’ in Spalding (it is also broadcast live on BBC Radio Lincolnshire).
Tickets for this event are FREE from SHC Box Office Phone: 01775 764777
A welcome chance for us to meet up with Spencer Cozens and Jacqui McShee once again. Spencer produced our ‘Unafraid and Sober’ CD), and Jacqui who sang ‘The Scarecrow’ for us.
On Friday 16th November we make our first visit to the renowned St Edith Folk Club in Otford Kent. Tickets for the night are available in advance from St Edith Folk. or from WeGotTickets
As always we’re looking forward to meeting up with old friends and, hopefully, making some new ones along the way. Hope to see you there
Archie Fisher tells us that he performed Terry’s song ‘Leave It With Mine’ at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival this year. Many thanks to Archie who also recorded ‘Silver Coin’ - twice.
Given that Terry and Doug perform Muskett material in various solo/duo settings for much of the year we have decided to include these outings in a separate section of the ‘Live Dates’ list for those interested.
It is gratifying that the new Muskett CD ‘Unafraid and Sober’ continues to receive excellent reviews. Extracts and links can be found on the ‘Our Story’ page, together with full CD details
Copies of both our comeback CDs - ‘Unafraid and Sober’ and ‘That Was Then This Is Now’ - are available from this site and at our gigs.
Unfortunately neither of the 70s albums is officially available at the moment
As always, if you would like to get in touch do feel free to use our e-mail link on the ‘Contact Us’ page.
