Bath Folk Club: Bob & Gill Berry, with Eagle Alley
Friday 7 February 2020
The Assembly Inn, 17 Alfred St, Bath BA1 2QU
Bob and Gill have been performing together in the traditional folk world for more than 34 years. Their music is primarily traditional and contemporary folk but their love of performing brings all sorts of music to the fore with massive variety in their performances. They display a great deal of love and passion for their music and a deep connection between them as two people.
‘They give us a feast of song, performed with confidence and commitment, an obvious labour of love.’
‘Their close harmony singing displays an evident strong and sensitive musical bond.’
David Kidman, Netrythms (2006)
Eagle Alley is an unaccompanied harmony group based in Bath and Bradford on Avon. Anne Gregson, Rob Winder and Chris Timson sing close harmony, choosing songs from the English tradition plus others from further away. Two of singers are also accomplished song writers and contribute to the repertoire. They do love a good chorus and sea shanties are never far away.
‘Three voices combine to thrilling effect’ – Tim Carter, Off the Beaten Track, Somer Valley FM
