Biography

Barry Dransfield is an English folk singer, fiddler, cellist and guitarist. His 1971 album “Lord of All I Behold” was voted Melody Maker folk album of that year.

He performed and recorded with his brother Robin Dransfield. As a duo, Robin & Barry Dransfield built their early following at the Harrogate Folk Club, where they shared the stage with such influential folk artists as Martin Carthy, Ewan MacColl, and the Watersons. Continuing to evolve as a band, the Dransfields moved to an acoustic/electric sound with the addition of vocalist/bassist/keyboardist Charlie Smith and drummer Brian Harrison. Two years of non-stop work peaked with the release of two legendary duo/band albums, “Rout of the Blues” and “Lord of All I Behold”.

As well as releasing his own albums, Barry Dransfield has appeared as a session musician on numerous albums by other artists.

    "...der dafür bekannt war seine Geige vor der Brust zu halten anstatt unter dem Kinn um gleichzeitig singen und spielen zu können" - nun, Leute, in Ungarn ist das gang und gäbe! ;-)

    no shout for Barry Dransfield? scandalous. his self titled album from the 70's is one of the best of its kind from that decade. 5 stars and no mistake.
