Fine sparky playing: bags of originality                   Andy Cheyne: Folk Roots

The hottest acoustic band around                    The Message, Chester, Vermont

A sound which is flawless and an atmosphere which is incredible
Even the most reserved audience would find them irresistible
They play each number as if it’s the final one                                Rock ‘n Reel

The frail frame of Camille Parker holds a remarkable rich and powerful voice.
                                                                                                  Tyke’s News

Gypsy Reel have been perfecting their eclectic blend of Celtic and original music for over 20 years all over the world.  Don’t miss this chance to hear these great musicians in a rare acoustic setting.                     highergroundmusic.com

  1. Hi Graham and Camille,
    Just was listening to an old tape of yours! Was getting nostalgaic and wanted to send an email to say hello. My Brit wife Janina and I are still in Danville,Vt. Janina owns a flat in St Ives Cornwall. If you ever want to rent it some day be happy to accommodate you. Remember all the fun times at the Dome!

  2. Graham, enjoyed the New Inn session last week- thought it was one of the best and it was good to meet and hear Camille too. Here is a link to an amusing set of subtitles over the movie clip. Hope it works. I’ve got my ticket for the May 3rd end of season party, front row of SK2 should be fun- just need a couple of wins now to go up as champions. I’m in France this w/e so will not see the QPR match, give em a shout from Vermont for me! Cheers Tim

  3. Hi Graham
    I hope your summer is going really well. We so enjoyed you playing at SILO and I wonder how your schedule is looking for the rest of the year. We would love to have you back here.
    Let me know.
    Warmly
    Anne Marie
