Description


Hen Party are Heather Bradford, Sarah Morgan and Alison Muir. This, their second album, contains a selection of traditional, popular and contemporary songs in a cappella harmony.


These are songs to touch your HEART - songs about the taking, faking and making of  LOVE. Most of the songs feature in the Hen Party show of the same name.


HEN PARTY is a female folk group rooted in English traditional style, yet sparkily innovative in their vocal performance. Each member brings her unique style to the group - Alison sang in a duo with Sheila March throughout the 70s before joining the famous harmony group Bread and Roses, while Sarah (also a former member of Bread and Roses) has long performed in folk theatre, and sung with various acts including Appalachian vocalist Mary Eagle and fiddle player Mike OConnor. Heather, a singer with the 70s folk/blues band Hannington Light, brings a lilting, punky edge to the Hen Party sound.   HEN PARTY got together in 1995 when they did an impromptu performance at Bracknell Harmony Day, and they havent looked back since.
