East Riding Folk was a group of young musicians originally put together by Bill and Stuart Davidson in 1974 (see back cover image for more detail). The album itself is a mix of traditional folk standards and a handful of suitable pop/acoustic songs such as John Denver’s evergreen “Annie’s Song” and the epic Paul Simon composition “The Boxer”.
One or two of the performers are still involved in music and the arts – for example, Marguerite Mackley taught Dance at Hull College, while Amanda Lowe is now a renowned player of the hammered dulcimer, and a member of popular world music band Celtarabia.
Windmills is custom pressed by SRT and as normal with SRT releases, has two distinct catalogue numbers.
Recorded at Fairview Studios and engineered by Keith Herd and Roy Neave.
