FRRR18 Bees on Horseback

The first album from Flowers and Frolics. This much-loved and highly influential band sprang from a mid-'70s musical melting pot: There were the sessions at the Union Bar, Islington; the influence of Australian melodeon-player & song-source Graeme Smith; and the memorable joint sessions with Old Swan Band's musicians at Sidmouth's Ship Inn in August 1975.

PRODAN2017 A Little Cup of Tea

A long awaited recording from a band who have always been more interested in performing live. Ed Caines, Rob Neal and Derek Simpson making the kind of music that, if you were lucky enough, you might have heard in the remoter Suffolk pubs of the last century. A mixture of folk song pathos, music hall hilarity and toe-tapping dance tunes.
