Recorded at the Trunch village hall. Sid and Henry in full kipper flow. Witness the full comic talent of the duo as they tell some of their old stories and sing some of their old songs. You may recognise the tunes, but the words will bring a new dimension to folk singing!

Trivia: When they did the recording at the village hall, they had done the whole thing and the sound engineer was giving it a listen, He found there was an annoying “humm” over the whole recording. Turns out that the coach that had bought them, the driver parked up close to the building and left the engine running to keep warm. So the duo had to turn around and do the entire set again. They did it without a word of discontent. Professionals. (This was a story I heard, I think in our FB group, Justin)
