Welcome to the Hunter Muskett website.

That was then…

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.

This is now…

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?

News

March/April/May

Back from a few brief bursts on the road and some excellent gigs.  As usual many thanks to all who made this possible:

Pat Crilly for setting up Doug’s Hertford birthday bash, Paul Meehan for inviting us down to Leeds for the first time in years – a great club, Ray and Anna for arranging a terrific evening at Great Bardfield, Alan, Ian, Colin, Rob and Marj for having us back at the perennially wonderful Dartford folk club, and Dave et al for their customary welcome at Folkmob with everyone up for ‘Wagon Wheel’ at the end.

As always great to see some faces from the old days with special mention to Chris Simpson for getting up for a Magna’s reunion with Doug at Headingly and to Frank McConnell for his set with Ian Petrie at Dartford – memories of ‘The Hanging Lamp’ at Richmond’. Of the new faces, special mention to Zoe Web for her opening set at Great Bardfield and Anne Sumner for supporting at Dartford – two to watch out for.

Very sadly one old friend was no longer  there: Roy Middleton, club stalwart and maestro of the mixing desk at Darford FC will be greatly missed.

Back on the road (and the plane)

Next stop will be Denmark, a first for Muskett.  There will be four dates culminating in the overseas leg of Doug’s birthday bash.

A highlight will be playing two gigs with ‘Then Came The Wheel’ to round things off – two busy nights for Doug.

Looking forward to it…

Half Muskett (or less)

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.

The New CD - Unafraid and Sober

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

Best Wishes

Hunter Muskett
