Lucena, Gef; Crofters, The

Gef Lucena writes of this release: “I have been singing most of these songs on and off since around 1962. Up until about 1970 this was as half of The Crofters, the Bristol based folk duo who performed regularly at folk clubs mainly in the West of England and on radio and TV. We both sang and I played mainly mandola, autoharp, banjo and recorder and my singing partner, Martin Pyman, played guitar. My singing career was put on hold for some 30 years after all my instruments fell out of the boot of my car and were squashed en route to a folk club booking when going up a 1 in 4 (25%) hill out of Waterley Bottom near Wottonunder-Edge in Gloucestershire…Then in 2016, following a burst of poesy, I released a book and CD of 32 of my mostly recent poems on wildlife, history and some funny stuff. All these recent recordings were made in my home studio in our cottage in the wilds of South Gloucestershire where we have lived since 1968…”
