Back at the Rock Lobster

February 20, 2007

What a great name for a recording studio!  We had a productive second session in the studio, despite a shaky start (lots of sore throats and croaky voices…).  It’s interesting hearing what we actually sound like!  Another session coming up in a couple of months’ time to get things finished off and get that CD out on the market!!!

The Rock Lobster Sessions

February 11, 2007

Our latest project is getting our first studio CD recorded.  We’ve been working with Rock Lobster Studios in Southwold, and they’ve been great so far.  We’ve got seven songs recorded; now we’re heading into the studio again on February 18th to finish it off.  This is the easy bit!  Then we have to organise cover artwork, distribution, etc. etc.  

Martin Carthy & Dave Swarbrick Support

January 14, 2007

Very high profile support slot, this!  We’ve been asked to support folk icons Martin Carthy and Dave Swarbrick at the Milkmaid Folk Club on September 14th.  Hope we do ourselves proud!

Milkmaid Folk Club

January 8, 2007

On January 5th we were back at the Milkmaid Folk Club in Bury St Edmunds, where we supported Mary Humphreys and Anahata. The club is enjoying more and more support, and there was a great turn-out to hear these two very talented musicians.

Milkmaid Folk Club

Sound Tradition appeared at the Milkmaid Folk Club on Friday 20th October 2006, supporting Dana Robertson. This was a great night and well attended not least by our dear friend and webmaster Tim Morley. Thanks for your support Tim electronic and otherwise.

Terry Walden says:
“This was Sue and Dana’s second time at The Milkmaid and wow! they were fantastic. They are two really lovely people, hugely talented and extremely down to earth. We were their first gig on the tour but you wouldn’t have thought it. Their performance using guitar, fiddle, banjo and mandolin and wonderful singing belied the jet lag they were feeling. Their song ‘What Would Woody Do’ is fast becoming their anthem, great stuff.

“Sound Tradition are, I’m proud to say, members of The Milkmaid. They have done a lot of behind the scenes work to promote and keep the club going, for which all of us connected to folk music in Bury are extremely grateful. The performance they gave as support act was the best I have heard from them to date. Every time I see them they really do get better and better.”

Hawstead Summer Fête

September 3, 2006

This summer Sound Tradition headlined along with Make Do at the local Hawstead Summer Fête — a fun day for all the family. The event was to raise money for a new village hall.

We were performing on a hayrick in force 7 gales but it was all for a good cause. Windy but nice!
