Allan Macleod and Dick Holdstock have performed together for more than twenty five years. Their performances reflect the rapport and polish that two performers can achieve only after working together for a good many years. Everyone can tell they truly enjoy performing together.
An evening of music, Holdstock and Macleod style, is filled with the richness of the music of their Scottish and English roots. The songs they sing tell more clearly than any history book what the people were thinking and feeling at the time. Whether they are singing of the beauties of the countryside or the horrors of war, Holdstock and Macleod are able to totally involve their audiences with the experience. They have perfected the knack of achieving audience participation and manage to get the audience to sing along wherever they perform.
Their act is tight, their guitar, and mandolin accompaniments are sparkling and their stories are outrageous. They are especially expert in the performance of sea songs and shanties, but they have wide experience presenting stimulating workshops on all kinds of British traditional music.

Winter in the Wood
Totally enjoyed this CD which is more folk than shanty, but wonderful nonetheless. Chuckled throughout "Jock Stewart" and tapped my toes throughout the rest of the CD. The only thing better than their CDs is seeing them in concert where audience participation is encouraged.

Lewis Santer

A favorite of mine now on CD!
I bought the cassette versions of this CD in the late 80's and have worn the tapes out with listening, so I'm pleased to find the CD reprint. It's impossible not to sing along with this goodly quantity of definitive versions. I would have re-bought it for tracks 1 and 13 alone.

Winter in the Wood
If you're looking for genuine people (that is, "folk") songs, these guys are the real deal! Every note, every word, holds the joy and/or poignancy of the whole human experience, and they have such *fun* expressing it. The sweetness of Alan's voice contrasts beautifully with the grittiness of Dick's, and the instruments complement the vocals elegantly.
I too have worn out my old tapes, and am happy to have the tunes available again in CD format. If you like "people" music you'll appreciate this CD (as well as everything else they've released)!
