Narrowboat Sessions

The Narrowboat Sessions are just that, recording sessions on a narrowboat, a wonderfully simple concept developed by Mark and Sue Holdsworth. Travelling the beautiful canals of the UK, Mark and Sue invite musicians onto their home and get them to play a few songs which are videoed and recorded for future charity CD’s. Southbound Attic Band were recorded during a warm sunny day in July in Chester in 2014 and the videos of the three tracks are now included in video form on our Music/Video page. The track the Ballad of George and Maude has been selected for the first of the CD collections (Launch date TBA) which also includes, amongst many others, tracks by Henry Priestman and Les Glover, Steve Tilston and probably the last ever recordings by the late, lovely Maggie Boyle. We consider it a real privilege to have been involved and I’ve included here a video from the same sessions of Steve and Maggie and their rendition of Silver Dagger, for no other reason other than I love it and it always brings a tear to my eye (in a good way!)
