In the Club

Folk Legends Dave Swarbrick & Simon Nicol, Folk’s Finest Duo’s first album now on C.D. After Fairport Convention called it a day in 1979, Dave Swarbrick and Simon Nicol joined forces and spent the early eighties playing folk clubs throughout the country as an acoustic duo. Their repertoire was drawn from various sources – including Fairport’s, Swarb’s late seventies/early eighties solo albums and also several tracks that were individual to the duo.

The acoustic duo proved popular and recorded three albums. Two of those, the 1981 live album ‘Live at the White Bear’, and the 1984 studio effort ‘Close to the Wind’, were re-issued a few years back on the Woodworm Records label. The third, ‘In The Club’ has never appeared in any format other than it’s original, limited release cassette format, until now. Fully remastered for CD and with previously unreleased bonus material. Fairport reformed again in 1985 with Simon and have become one of the countries hardest working/touring bands ever since.
