VARIOUS ARTISTS - NYON FOLK FESTIVAL 1979

Noyon Folk Festival cover

A double album recorded at the Nyon Folk Festival, 19-22 July 1979. Dave and Brian (though only Dave is credited) took their newly forged acoustic double act to the Festival after the highly successful tour round the UK clubs in early 1979.

The track included here is an acoustic version of "Grace Darling" sung in French (the album version had been released for the French Canadian market in 1975 with French vocals as "Cherie Je T'Aime").

Other artists featured on the 2LP set include Maddy Prior, Planxty, Fairport Convention, Loudon Wainwright III, Tannahill Weavers and veteran songstress Melanie.
