Mick Tems of Taplas

reviews Sea Strands by Tim Laycock

TIM Laycock has produced an appealing cameo of well-chosen songs and tunes with a strong Dorset flavour, enhanced with minimal but thoughtful and beautiful arrangements, led by his duet concertina. The actor, singer and collector has a perfect knack of transporting you to the county he loves so well and he paints an informative portrait of country life then and now.

The heart warming point about this CD is that he has done a great deal for Dorsetís status in his research, his love of interesting historical facts, his song and tune-writing and his ability to restore and polish the songs and music. Listen to The Bold Grenadee coupled with Jackís Alive, Write Me Down, The Night Of Trafalgar and Farewell She.
