This album from several years ago features sets we have played at Cambridge and East Anglian folk clubs over the years. The album features two lineups of Camus, with Greg, Andrew and David as the core band. In the first lineup we are joined by Brian Cleary and Debbie Patterson-Jones; in the second by Mike Nelson. Below is a track from the album, sung by Andrew: Charlotte Dymond, set to Andrew’s own tune from the poem by Cornish poet Charles Causley.

Charlotte Dymond

This album features our eclectic mix of folk music, with tunes and songs from Ireland, Scotland, England, America and Galicia. These are sets we typically played for listening at ceilidhs, in between dances, though there are also some dance tunes. Two sets contain tunes we wrote: the title track, Cold Fen, is an evocative slow air by Greg; and the Three-Day Week and Alan Burn’s Memorial Jig are 48-bar jigs by Andrew which we play for The Bridge of Athlone. Below you can hear the title track: Cold Fen, a tune by Greg.

We still have a limited number of this rare 1979 vinyl album by Cambridge band Cobblers Last on the Banshee label, which features Andrew, Greg and David, along with John Pethica and Pam Cooper. It was recorded at the historic Cambridge studio Spaceward, and features in the Spaceward Studios archive. Here’s a track we called The Two Johnnies, combining Johnny has Gone for a Soldier, sung by Pam, and Johnny I hardly Knew You, sung by Andrew.
