Scolds Bridle

Scolds Bridle
I first saw Scolds Bridle about 30 years ago in the former Old Ship Folk Club, where as I recall they went down very well. They are an acoustic duo comprising Sue Bousfield (vocals, English concertina) and Liz Moore (vocals, guitar, bouzouki) and their songs range from the poignant or wistful to ballads and rousing chorus songs, often presented with fine harmonies.

"Fine harmonies, good music and excellent presentation; splendid." Alan Bearman, Sidmouth International Festival.
“Scold’s Bridle just get better and better.” Jan Lardner, BBC Radio Lancashire.
A scold's bridle, yesterday

Scolds Bridle are appearing this Sunday 4 November at the Bothy Folk Club, Park Golf Club, Park Road West, Southport, PR9 0JS. The venue serves Thwaites real ale. It begins at 8.00 p.m. Click for on-line tickets. 

It's unusual for the Bothy to have guest artists in such quick succession (Pilgrims' Way are just two days earlier; see previous post), but they're worth two nights out in one weekend.
