Artist Details

The Harbour Lights Trio

Three Suffolk musicians (Derek Simpson, Alvar Smith & Rob Neal) perform mainly East Anglian songs and tunes on concertinas, melodeon, banjo, guitar, harmonica and ‘cello. Their material ranges from local traditional chorus songs and tunes to music hall and a few more recent gems. The emphasis is on entertainment and audience participation. They prefer to play acoustically and get up ‘close and personal’ with their audiences. One of the trio, Alvar, is a retired Suffolk Gamekeeper from Blaxhall and his stories and strong Suffolk accent are always popular. They have performed at Sidmouth & FolkEast Festivals; at a variety of folk clubs and at many East Anglian village concerts. You won’t want to miss them, so be prepared to join in with the choruses & merriment. Their CD (available to download on Twitter, etc). ‘Good Company’ describes them well
