Robin Dransfield Format: Audio CD. Brothers Robin & Barry Dransfield joined together to form the British folk band the Dransfields in 1969. Into the early 1970s, British folk-rock was the buzz word among record labels, but out in the folk clubs the kings of the castle were this hot-headed acoustic brother duo from Yorkshire - blessed in uncanny harmonising like the Everlys and any number of bluegrass siblings out west, but virtually alone in the art on the British folk scene. Robin Dransfield is a folk musician from Harrogate, Yorkshire, England. He plays acoustic guitar and often performed and recorded in a duo with his brother Barry Dransfield. Dransfield began performing in the 1960s, quickly gaining prominence for his quirky bluegrass old-timey sound. By 1969 Barry and Robin were performing full-time as a duo, frequently playing at the Harrogate Folk Club along with Martin Carthy, Ewan MacColl, and The Watersons. Dransfield recorded several albums during the 1970s. A Lighter Touch Robin Dransfield. Hux Records HUX 097 2 CD, UK, 2008. album details show all details hide all details.
