The Late Bloomers
Gerda Pickin and Cathy Frank first met through Stranraer Folk Club, and started playing and singing together in 2000. Both have roots in traditional folk music, but with influences as disparate as The Beatles, The Band, The McGarrigles and (no The) Eels! Gerda is originally from California but has lived in the UK for many years, while Cathy is an exiled Yorkshirewoman with Merseyside undertones, but both have made their home in Scotland’s south-west corner. Between them playing guitar, banjo and concertina (though not all at the same time), they perform a range of styles which include blues, bluegrass, traditional folk, Americana and some self-penned material, but always with the same tight arrangements with the accent on vocal and musical harmony. They have played in venues from Inverness to the English Midlands, in folk clubs and concert halls, pubs and cafes, and even in the bandstand in Edinburgh’s Princes Street Gardens!
Eamonn Jackson, a new young Irish country singer, launches not only a new Record Album but also a new Professional Backing Band. For several years now, this recently new young Breffni singer has been wooing the hearts of a hoard of loveable country dancing ladies and patrons in his home County of Cavan and surrounding regions – with his vibrant show of Old and New Country & Irish dance tunes.
Such is the success of this versatile young singer that he has been attracting huge dancing crowds to date, and furthermore, these dancers have hailed him locally as The Midnight Cowboy.
