Sleeve Notes for Live at the Lion by Roy Harris

Live at the LionRecorded live at The White Lion folk club in Wherwell. It captures all the spirit and energy of a wonderful performer who has devoted his life to traditional music. The charisma of his performance is reflected in the strength of singing from the audience.


.. a precious reminder of the enduring power and charm of traditional song.

The result is a classic Roy Harris club night on record, and if his retirement from singing means he does not make another album, its a great one to go out on.  EFDSS Magazine   Summer 2000

A lusty, sing-along, unaccompanied, traditional, pure folk evening beautifully captured on disc.     Traditional Music Maker
