Bees on Horseback
Revival re:Masters Series


This product is included in: The Third Series
This much-loved and highly influential band sprang from a mid-'70s musical melting pot:
There were the sessions at the Union Bar, Islington; the influence of Australian melodeon-player & song-source Graeme Smith; and the memorable joint sessions with Old Swan Band's musicians at
Sidmouth's Ship Inn in August 1975. Their meld of urban Music Hall, English Country Music
sourced from respected traditional players, and Graeme's outback songs and tunes won respect
and admiration from both dancers, fans and performers – they became much in demand at
England's many Folk Festivals, and by 1977, recorded a first LP for Free Reed, with contributions
from respected singers Bob Davenport and June Tabor. Here's its welcome re-release – with eight bonus tracks – and with fascinating notes on the band and its history – a delightful load of Flowers and Frolics!
