PJ Wright

Guitar virtuoso PJ is founding member of Little Johnny England, as well as half of duo PJ & Peggy (with Fairport Convention's Dave Pegg), lead guitarist of The Dylan Project (with Pegg and Steve Gibbons), and an excellent solo performer. As well as being one of my oldest friends, PJ is an assiduous promoter of my songs in the English folk scene.
His recording of my song "Lily of Barbary" has already led to two further versions on CD (see below).You can learn more about this excellent chap (and buy his albums) here.

Little Johnny England

Folk-Rock aces LJE have been through various personnel changes in the last few years, but at the moment, as well as founder members PJ Wright and Gareth Turner (melodeon), the band features fiddle-meister Guy Fletcher, bassist Hugh Bunker and drummer Mark Stevens. The band have recorded no fewer than seven of my songs, with another three on their forthcoming album "Tournament of Shadows". More info and shop here.

Fairport Convention

The mighty Fairport, celebrating over 40 years of folk-rocking, were one of my favourite bands of the late 60s/early 70s, so it's with great delight that I've got to know them and experience their recordings of my songs "Heart of the Song" (on "The Wood and the Wire" 2000) and "Hawkwood's Army" ("A Sense of Occasion" 2007). The latter was also included on their 2008 DVD "Fairport@Forty", recorded at the Cropredy Festival in their jubilee year. Much more on Fairport here.

Other recordings of Scrowthersongs

There have been recent recordings of the song "Lily of Barbary" by Isambarde and 4Square. Check 'em out.

Juri Viktor Stork, astrologer, web designer, multi-instrumentalist, singer and all-round good egg, is the creator of this and many other excellent web sites. Examples of his work can be seen on his own site astrolog.ch and on the website of the Scala in Wetzikon.

If you have one of these and prefer to buy your CDs that way, which I can understand perfectly, "Heart of the Song" is now on the Narrenschiff label (Nar2006028) and is distributed in Switzerland by Max Regli's estimable Schwingende Klangwelt.
