Pete Coe and Alice Jones

A treat to hear new takes on classic folk and rarities

Folk songs gathered by little-remembered Frank Kidson, an early collector from Leeds, provided the material for Pete and Alice’s recent double CD “The Search For Five Finger Frank” – and they are sure to feature heavily in their Ram performance. New arrangements of classic and rare ballads, broadsides and dance tunes show off their skills on a range of instruments, as well as two voices ideally suited to the traditional content. A thoroughly entertaining evening with a good deal of history and education thrown in.
