Dusty Diamonds by Martin & Shan Graebe

Summary

Gems of traditional English song, mined from the manuscripts of Sabine Baring-Gould and Cecil Sharp.

Some of the songs are presented here for the first time since they were collected. Many are variants of songs that are well known but we feel that the differences give them freshness and renewed charm. The songs we have chosen are mainly from the South-West of England, particularly Devon, though Cornwall is well represented. There are also two songs written by Martin.


Vocals - Martin and Shan Graebe,
Concertina - Keith Kendrick,
Fiddles - Nick Wyke and Becki Driscoll
Additional Vocals - Doug Bailey, Keith Kendrick and Sylvia Needham
