Dear All,
in the 80's I lived in Hadfield and regularly went to see the Three Crows. My ex boyfriend pinched the only tape I had of their music so I have heard none of their music since then. I now live in Kenya and am yearning for a dose of decent english folk. Can any tell me how and where to get hold of the CDs that some of you have mentioned?

I will be back in the UK briefly in November so can sort out money and delivery etc then.

Hoping to hear back from someone

Michelle

For many many years enjoyed the Crows at (in) their annual pilgrimage to St.Thomas's Hadfield. Forgive the "grammar" and/or spelling,just thank "whoever?" if you saw them at their amusing, very local and musical best.

My favourite Pennine's song of all time. And topical on Monday.

On Saint Patrick's day, the seventeenth, from New York we set sail.
Good fortune did favour us wi' a sweet and a pleasant gale.
We tore away from Americae, the wind veered off the land.
And with courage brave we bore away, bound out for Newfoundland.

You all know the rest. When are the Pennines appearing somewhere again?

Do they have their own website?

Hi Guys - just found this site on Google!

I am one of Franks Son. He passed away in 1999.

It took The 'Crows a while to play again after his death, but they are playing again now. Generally it is only Charity events and such that they do, but they do sound as good as ever.

There are numerous albums going around, some even been put on to CD now!!!!!!

It is heartening to know that there is still such a strong following for them

Hi Peter,
I've only just found this site.
We, my wife, Mave and I, saw the Three Crows at a school in Stalybridge in the 70's, possibly St. Damian's and they were great. Their harmony, comedy and rapport with the audience was superb.
We also saw them at the Park Bridge Visitor Centre at Bardsley in Ashton at a folk meeting.
I have a tape called "The Three Crows Still Going". All songs arranged by the Crows, Bass & Key boards- Paul Kempster.
It was engineered by Paul Kempster & Chris Birchenall.
Mixed by Paul & the Crows.
Side one:-
Bread & Fishes.
Three score & ten.
Streets of London.
Coalhole cavalry.
Green fields of France.
Dirty old town.
Old triangle.
Poor childhood, a monologue recited by Fran.
Liverpool Lou.
Side two:-
Come landlord.
Derby ram.
Sweet 16.
Cadgwith anthem.
Seth Davy.
Ali Bali.
Murphy & the bricks.
Now I'm easy.
Nightingale.
Leaving of Liverpool.
Goodnight & God bless.
We now live on Ellen Vannin, the Isle of Man, so don't get across to often to folk concerts, but we do join in the sing-a-rounds in our local pub.
Should you want a copy of the tape, I can try & copy it for you onto another tape.
Regards,
T. C.

By the way their first album was 'The Three Crows' at the Junction The second one was 'Inn Song'(never was much good at puns was old Arthur) recorded live from The Junction with Arthur Fran and John.

Malcom Price was a lovely guy who with his wife Carol and Mick North played the Folk Music circuit during the 1960's and further.I knew Malcom well in those days and recorded him doing the Long Black Veil on a very rare compiliation album Folk Scene (FSP 001)(1966. rare, because only 500 were produced. I and a partner published a magazine called Folk Scene, which sadly folded after 18 monthly issues and Malcolm was featured in a couple of them. He did come from Kent and was a former grave digger. One of the nicest guys on the folk scene. Will always remember the Malcolm Price Trio with great affection.Cheers and good luck. stwallace@madasafish.com

I remember the 3 Crows but didn't know them. Of Tickawinda, I knew Alison but didn't know that Clive Gregson was a member. The last I heard of Clive was that hed moved to Nashville.

Chris Swann - demon designer of pinball and other gaming machines - joined Cheryl Gibbons and her then partner Rob ? to form Sunwheel. Shortly after a failed single about Red Rum, Rob and Cheryl moved away with Rob's job to Nottingham although they commuted back to run the Sat Night sessions at Stalybridge Station. Unfortunately they didn't survive the next move to London and then Epsom and they split up shortly afterwards. I heard that Cheryl was working at the Kings Head in Islington but that was years ago.

Haven't seen any of them in years including Pete Astles and Ken Campbell - Ken used to book the acts for us back in the 70's when we ran a large Cheshire folk club in competition with the one at Poynton. I have a pile of "rare" folk records perhaps Chris could point me at a site which lists their values.

Wasn't the "Berwers" run for a time by Tony and Arthur? Arthur lives in Bollington and still intends to be famous one day - he is currently the Mayor's Consort. Tony died in a climbing accidentnearly 30 years ago.

Any more names??

There is a DVD of the event available of the reunion concert if anyone is interested with the proceeds going to charity. The line up on the night was Ken Campbell,Frank Clapton,Lynton Macconnell,Margaret Whitehead,Cris Swann and myself Pete Bowler.

Chris Swann was a member of Sunwheel. If anyone wants any info on them,I can supply.

The Three Crows performed in a number of schools in the evening. They were teachers themselves. Arthur Howard was the lead singer and tamborine, Fran Delaney sang and played mandolin and guitar, John Vale also sang now and again and played a twelve string guitar. They did an LP called "THE THREE CROWS AT THE JUNCTION", I believe they also did "THE THREE CROWS LIVE AT THE JUNCTION" as well but cannot confirm the title. They also produced a tape called "THE THREE CROWS - 25 YEARS ON". I would like to know if they recorded anything else, perhaps someone out there might know. I saw them quite a number of times, and only wish there was some film or video of their performaces which as well as good songs were filled with Lancashire humour. Fran Delaney died a couple of years ago, and I have heard though not confirmed, that Arthur has since died fairly recently. I would be interested to hear from anyone with more up to date info.

Hi again Spot!

Glad you like the corrections, and yes, you had better pull yourself
together (imagine you're a pair of curtains:-} SORREEE)and hope your
good lady doesn't see this thread.

I know what you mean though. Everytime I pull a record out to

like a couple of years since I bought it, it usually has 1965 or '70
on it by the way. Don't time fly when your having fun?

I don't post a great deal, but I lurk a lot and soak up the great amount of knowledge that abounds on the 'cat, and I try to help

Hi Marion and Spot, I went back over the threads the other day
and found that this one had reared it's head again, it must have
disappeared before I managed to get on the 'cat, which is why
I didn't see it at the time

I saw your transcript Spot, (Thanks so much for that), and thought
I'd have a listen again and see if I could fill in the gaps,
(it's so much easier when someone has already had a go at it).

So here's my try, I think it's very close, see what you think.

THE KING COMES RIDING
By THE PENNINES
From "Manchester Morning"

The former earl of Acquitaine swings and dances in the rain
Between the heather and the sky, suspended on a gallows high
Above his head the raven cries, descends to peck his royal eyes
A bold wind turns him for a while- a broken heart, a rigor mortis smile

And when the King comes riding see the hawks rise
Sunlight catches the standard he flies
Silver of eagles, blood of the rose
Now on the shoreline his cavalry jingles into the rivermouth
And over the shingle he goes.

The widow weeps the castle burns and then the royal army turns
Racing the shadows of the dawn to the Holy Isle of Lindisfarne
The lord high abbott by his shrine, prepares his treacherous design
But in a while he will have been from glories rose to crucifixion seen

And when the King etc

The mountain wizard casts his spell to summon riders out of Hell
But even these will turn and fly and vanish when the King rides by
And then across Northumberland, an iron mace swings in his hand
With blood to satisfy his need..Plantagenet - a very restless breed.

And when the King etc


Cheers for now

Cattail !

Regarding Tickawinda. The group featured a young Clive Gregson on guitar and released one LP which is now ultra collectable. (I'd love to buy a copy if anyone has one for sale). Tickawinda was re-issued on CD by the Kissing Spell label a couple of years ago

Please would anyone mentioned above contact me via email, where possible - I've been working on 'Where are they now' ideas for BBC GMR Sounds of Folk, and have so far managed to organise interviews with Ted Edwards and Rosie Hardman - both of which have already been broadcast. I also managed to track down some recordings of a friend who died many years ago, which was really wonderful.

We're only concerned with performers who originated (or were based) in the GMR catchment area, though.

Where necessary, I can arrange to interview people who knew the performers if they are no longer around. It is better if we have a recording to play, too - as long as it is suitable for broadcast.

Click here if you'd like to be involved - live in the studio, via telephone link, or a pre-recorded interview.

Alio (Ali O'Brien) is the programme's presenter, and I'm the producer. Laura Hockenhull and Jenny McCormick complete the team. We broadcast on Mondays between 8 and 9 p.m., and you can now listen on DAB or the Internet if you can't receive us on 95.1/104.6 FM.

Please get in touch!

I was a member of the Malcolm Price Trio foir several years after replacing mandolinist Mick North. By an incredible coincidence I had already bought Mick's pre-war Gibson A50 mandolin from Clifford Essex in Earlham Street London. I still play in a band with banjo and fiddle player John Field who played on the Malcolm Price Trio +one album Way Down Town. Although I never recorded with Malcolm, I was involved in numerous BBC broadcasts with him from the late sixties to the early eighties.He was born, I think, in Sidcup and he now lives in Norway. Roger Churchyard, who also played in the trio,and with whom I played in the bluegrass band Orange Blossom Sound, is still in regular contact with.
