Colin Andrews: Songs From The Simply English Caravan (review)

December 27, 2017
This is a most unusual album in many ways. Not least because Andy Rouse has been based in Pec, Hungary, for more than 20 years, where, other than lecturing at the university, he performs English folk songs, with local musicians Barbarci Bulcsu and Zsombor Horvath.

Christmas and Valentine's Day

November 9, 2010
Dear Organiser, November is here, and before we know it Christmas will be here, too. Let me offer two SIMPLY ENGLISH concerts for those long winter evenings: "A Simply English Christmas" and "Valentine's Day' with Simply English".

 

 

Simply English performs at concerts, festivals, cultural centres, libraries, in schools and universities, at wedding ceremonies and other private functions. Simply English cooperates in theatre productions, writing, arranging and recording music. As well as its own long-term projects, Simply English accepts specific thematic projects for individual clients from its repertoire of over 100 songs and tunes and through further research.

The band plays all kinds of vernacular music, from medieval lyrics and student songs, to the piquant urban songs from the 17th and 18th century, to 19th-century music hall songs and the folk music of the countryside and the industrial townships, as well as a handful of twentieth-century songs.
