Moorland Folk in the early 80's
Lt to Rt. Dave Higginson, John Clarke, Des Powell
(at a gig with Mike and John Hargeaves)
original line up of Moorland Folk, John
Clarke, Dave Higginson and Des Powell first got together in 1975
inspired by the music and humour of The Fivepenny Piece. They rapidly
acquired a following in East Lancs and had regular gigs at local folk
clubs, pubs and concert venues throughout the 70s and 80s.
In 1980, just
for fun, the band did a series of home-made recordings in Daves
front room on fairly basic equipment. These tapes were tucked away
and forgotten until the advent of the home PC and the CD writer, when
it became possible to transform the tape recordings into digital
format. The recordings are not high quality but are very listenable
and likeable. John left the band in 1991 and Dylan Owen, a young
rising star from Ossie stepped in to fill the gap. During the
90s Moorland Folk began to travel further afield, playing Folk
Festivals, and making
proper albums.("Counting the Bars" and "Mud on the Tracks").
40 years on the band are still keen to get out and play
every week, and are available for booking now.
in 1980 were
(vocals, 12 String guitar, mandolin)
(vocals, guitar, banjo, mouth organ)
(vocals, bass, lunch box)
