Did you have a great Summer….?



…Well we certainly did!  Welcome to our third regular update of the various projects that we have on the go at Cothrecords for 2006 and beyond.  You are receiving this because you have at one time or other signed up to the mailing list for one of the bands that we are involved with (either at a gig, or via the website), purchased CD’s from us online or said those rash words "do keep in touch"!  If you no longer want to receive these updates, please let us know and your details will be removed from our lists.



Doug Eunson and Sarah



Sarah Matthews and Doug Eunson

Doug and Sarah’s new duo album entitled “Proper Swell” is now available and receiving rave reviews from radio stations and the public alike.

Our Summer tour of Ontario was a great success (if something of a whirlwind event), so a huge thanks to all our new Canadian friends for making us so welcome, and buying so many albums!

In the UK we have many more appearances planned at various clubs and events, including of course the "In The Round" series of concerts  with Keith Kendrick, Sylvia Needham and special guests at the Beresford Arms in Ashbourne (next date 2nd Oct with Hughie Jones) See the Gig Guide for more details on all of the above.



Gill Redmond and Sarah Matthews

The long awaited CD "Personally Speaking" is also available to order from the website, (thanks to all those who ordered in advance).  Gill and Sarah have been busy tutoring at various workshops, working with fiddlers at Witney, a whole string section in a Nottingham orchestra, and teaching and playing at Whitby Folk Week.  See the Gig Guide for details on where to catch them next.


The end of May saw the first Folktet gig, the folk acoustic string quartet, playing for European dance with great success at Kinnersley MADE Festival… elegant, subtle and joyful; a delight for both listening and dancing” Jessica Abrahams, dance tutor.

Cross o'th Hands

Cross o’th Hands

With the mass of other work going on (as described elsewhere on this mailshot), it has been increasingly difficult to get Doug, Sarah, Michelle and John together at the same time to take COTH out on the road.  Nonetheless it is an effort worth making if the enthusiastic invites, and audience receptions are anything to go by!  Our most recent outing to Cornwall Folk Festival was a great success and keep your eyes peeled for some “Derbyshire Born and Bred” performances later this year. 


October sees the introduction of a new dance and concert event each month in Leicestershire, with COTH to kick start them on 20th October.  See the Gig Guide for more details on any of these events.


Cross o'th Hands are also featured on Keith Kendrick's new album "Songs From The Derbyshire Coast" which is now available from  Keith or Wildgoose Records






Graft had a blast at the Ostrich Rock and Blues Festival back in July; a great suntan was had by all!  Since then, they have been working hard to organise more of their regular dance events at the Belper Community Hall.  The next events are confirmed on  23rd September and 21st October, so keep an eye on the Gig Guide, come on down and dance your socks off.





And Finally….




…..well if you do, you may be interested to know that Derby’s favourite folk rockers are back together for a rare a special treat at The Flowerpot, King Street, Derby on Friday 13th October!!! 



Hope to see you all at a gig somewhere in the remainder of 2006, and don’t forget to drop in to the website occasionally at:
