Silver, Stone & Sand

Shimmering silver, solid stone and shifting sands

"A most enjoyable listen; the songs are infectious and deserve to be widely 'sung out'.  Andrew and Carole are particularly adept at writing and performing songs to make you smile and songs to make you join in.  The complete set paints a vivid picture of times past with a broad spectrum of musical colours.  The songs are all very different, but all are well observed and well crafted."

Characters

New and old songs, humorous, sad, witty or downright silly

"A well-varied and well-programmed collection of songs that cover traditional, music-hall and recently-composed with equal facility; there´s also a keen sense of proud enjoyment in the duo´s singing that´s really infectious and positively invites you to join in with the rousing choruses they evidently like so much."

Pennbucky to Llangenny

Swansea sailors and coppermen - new songs of old times

"Andrew's songs have always fascinated and elated me.  He is reminiscent of a cross between a Kipling and a Fox-Smith, but with one big difference; whereas Peter Bellamy made the tunes for Kipling, Andrew did it all himself . . and what good, rock-and-rolling songs they are, too. There isn't a wasted one among them."
