Hobson's Voice spent two days in Paul Bryan's kitchen - fantastic acoustics! - recording songs for our new CD
Packed full of our latest songs, this CD includes one song - 'Cantabusker Ex Libris' - which was inspired by buskers in Cambridge. A chance meeting brought John into contact with Michael Copley (of the Classic Buskers ...formerly the Cambridge Buskers) - "you were the inspiration for one of my songs" John says, "I don't suppose you'd come and join us when we record it would you?" - "Of course, I'd be delighted" replied Michael. And so it was that Hobson's Voice had the great honour of recording with Michael Copley.
Poor Michael even had the 'studio' cat to put up with. It made itself at home on Michael's lap!
Here is a short video clip of Kate, John & Godfrey recording 'Bicycle City Light Blues' with Michael playing his Digital Horn.
HOBSON'S VOICE played at PYMOOR METHODIST CHAPEL, on 10th Sept 2011. It is a long time ago, but it was one of those great moments in Time. After it, one lady came up to us and said these immortal words: " Thank you! You are singing about US and OUR LIVES... You are telling The World about our special home....Fenland!" We felt that someone for whom the songs were created had accepted them for what they were meant to be.....and had thoroughly enjoyed them....
