reviews Well Dressed by Keith Kendrick & Sylvia Needham

From the cover this looked like a pair of concertina players, (who are actually musicians for Winster Morris), but the strengths of the duo is their harmonious singing and the concertinas are never overstated particularly as they are regularly joined by five other musicians on pipes, brass and guitars etc.

There are a few well known folk songs, modern comic songs, shanties, and tunes but some with interesting variants. Two striking examples and with a very good brass accompaniment are Turpin' Ero (best on the album) and Blue Eyed Stranger / Joe Pea's. Nicely recorded at Wildgoose
