11/4/20 Singaround (Easter)
25/4/20 Guests, Linda and Alan Rosecastle. Lynda & Alan Rosecastle Lynda and Alan met in the autumn of 1974, and began singing together almost immediately. They were members of The Mountain Ash Band, making a folk- rock album called “The Hermit” in 1975 (other members included West Yorkshire folk legends Geoff Bowen, Martin Carter and Graham Jones). Around this time they moved to Keighley and started attending The Famous Bacca Pipes Folk Club as regular floor singers and occasional guests, which led to a long and fruitful association with Jim Ellison as Mountain Ash. In the early 1990s Lynda began singing with with Maggie Boyle and Helen Hockenhull as the much-loved vocal trio Grace Notes. For over twenty years they toured folk clubs and festivals, making 5 highly-acclaimed albums and hundreds of friends. Grace Notes ceased to be in November 2014 following Maggie’s untimely and tragic passing. Alan, meanwhile, played guitar and sang American Old-time with The Sensible Shoestring Band, sang acapella harmony with Inpo, and played for dancing with the Buttered Peas Ceilidh Band. After more than 40 years of singing together, Lynda and Alan can see no reason to stop now. As ever, their material consists of a mixture of traditional and contemporary songs, sometimes with guitar accompaniment, and mostly with vocal harmony. With a steady trickle of gigs, they have their eyes fixed firmly on the future. Their first duo CD, “To Take Another Turn” was released in summer, 2017. In January 2019 they moved to Whitby after decades of Folk Weeks, and are greatly enjoying the local folk scene.
