Dave, Des & Dylan
Recorded at Shamrock Studios


“Counting the Bars opens with the Furey’s "Steamboat Row" a good pacey opener with Des Powell’s bass pushing the songs along. Brian Osborne’s “Old Pendle” is sung from the heart as you would expect from a group based at the bottom of Pendle Hill. The album continues at a consistently high standard with Dave Higginson’s fine voice fronting all the songs and some excellent guitar and banjo work from Dylan Owen - particularly on "Ride On".
Moorland Folk have been singing and playing in the Blackburn area for years and still remain one of the best kept secrets since D-day”.
