Other Information:

Will and Chris have been singing in and around folk clubs and festivals from the early revival days. Mainly traditional in taste, they enjoy singing a wide variety of English / Irish material. Both are talented instrumentalists (guitar, fiddle, accordion, recorder) and are founder members of "Quadrille", a busy ceilidh band working in Lancashire and Yorkshire.

Stephanie Emmett first sang folk in the late sixties at the Selby Folk Club. She moved to Hong Kong and, during her 25 years there, founded the Hong Kong folk society. She sang in several folk groups and was the first musician for the Hong Kong Morris dancers! In 1998 she returned to her native Yorkshire, where she also sings with the Silsden Singers and other friends.

Paul Reade started singing during his student days in Leeds in the mid-sixties, moving on to be a well-known figure on the Manchester folk scene as a solo singer and in a duo with Al Lawrence. He organised a number of folk clubs, and was for many years one of the residents at the legendary Manchester Sports Guild (MSG). He moved to East Lancashire, where he also ran a number of clubs, and is currently one of the residents at Skipton Folk Club.
