Recent comments about our club performances

What they said at the Potteries Folk Club:

..we went to the Potteries Folk Club to see Notts Alliance.  I hope all those who made different choices had half as good a time as we did, but I doubt it, we came out on such a complete high, that we both chattered on and on about it all the way home.  The songs were so diverse, the arrangements so varied, that each song sounded so very different.  The harmonies were spine tinglingly tight.  The jokes were so bad, that the barracking from the audience became yet another entertaining feature of the night!  The fact that they had a good relationship with each other was apparent and their rapport with the audience was a joy.  As would be expected by all who know me, I especially enjoyed 'Oak and Ash and Thorn' and 'Rolling Down to Old Maui' but I will surprise you all by saying that I really enjoyed their opening song 'Wall of Death' which takes on a totally different feel in three part harmony, it was terrific.  As I have said before, each time I see Notts Alliance, they are stronger than before, this time is no exception.
