Isembard's Wheel
A second appearance for a folk band based in Sheffield, comprising an eclectic cast of wayfarers and bohemians collected in the years since the band was begun in 2013 by Alexander Isembard. They have partaken on festival stages, released an EP called Autumn in Eden, and aim to take their act even further afield.

They make a further appearance on the Folk Train, again for a charity purpose. As before, the money which would normally go to the band, will be presented to the charity collectors, previously having been well summed.
They comprise a group of musicians, from Sheffield Hallam University, who specialise in charity appearances to greatly deserved appreciation.

19 December 2017

These Folk Train old timers have taken on the Festive Season Folk Train on a number of previous occasions and have always been of great value. Once again they wil perform material from a wide range of sources, traditional folk, 60's pop, contemporary folk, Country and Scottish Dance.
Don't forget, they're probably the best Coal Aston based band in the World!

Dogwood Rose
They have now appeared in sequence several times in January over the last few years.  Despite the growing Folk Train attendance in other months, January had previously been subject to less dense audiences but, after a couple of Dogwood Rose's appearances, it has subsequenly been drawing a moderately large audience. So, a welcome back for the band.

Jig for a Kiss

Their first appearance on the Folk Train will indicate to us that they are an eight-piece folk band with whistle, recorder, flute, clarinet, sax, harmonica, melodeon, mandolin, bouzouki, guitar, bass, percussion and voices. They play their own arrangements of music old and new from the British Isles, Europe, and beyond.

Skiffle Show
This is the second appearance on the Folk train of DH Lawrence & The Vaudeville Skiffle Show. They are said to be "like a breath of fresh air in a crowded musical marketplace, with their subtle mix of traditional British Folk Music and Bluegrass, and an emphasis on witty Americana flavoured lyrics." It is also said of them that they are a bunch of classically trained washboard & kazoo players.
