Featuring Norma Waterson, Mike Waterson, Martin Carthy, Marie Knight (Lal Waterson’s daughter) and the renowned a capella trio Barry Coope, Jim Boyes and Lester Simpson. Stunning as individual acts, as a seven piece the whole is definitely more than a sum of its parts.

Lead vocals and harmony parts are swapped and juggled amidst the unique blend of distinctive Coope, Boyes and Simpson harmonies and familiar Waterson tones. With an on stage ambience varying from intense to hilarious Blue Murder fill the stage with their presence and some of the best and most powerful harmony singing the folk scene has ever known.

Met fundraiser.
