The Doctor Help: Are English Tapestry still about ? (66* d) RE: Help: Are English Tapestry still about ? 30 Mar 12

English Tapestry are definitely not still performing, more's the pity. Ruth and Brian Brittain still live just outside Cambridge, and their baby, Piers, has grown up. I remember your uncle, Pollywog, very well. He had, and probably still has, a great voice, which shone particularly when he did the Inkspots songs and the like. Ruth reckons her voice has gone, though I find that hard to believe. Either way neither she nor Brian sings much these days. They do have, however, a large collection of rehearsal tapes which, if all goes to plan, I am to help them transfer to CD, after which I hope to persude Brian to make some of them more widely available. I have a number of private recordings, but as several of them were made using battery-powered cassette recorders the quality leaves a lot to be desired. If anyone else has any recordings do let me know. 'Another rain', which was actually written for them, was always one of my favourites, along with The Holmfirth Anthem and The Streams of Lovely Nancy.
