If you’ve ever had the urge to travel across the pond to Great Britain, you might want to take a shortcut to the Freight and catch Holdstock & MacLeod performing timeless songs from their English and Scottish homelands. Joining them tonight to help celebrate the release of their new album, Seasoned Songs, will be Celia Ramsay, Carol Holdstock, Larry Hanks, and Dave Nachmanoff.
Dick Holdstock made his way to California from his native Sittingbourne, Kent, in the south of England. Allen MacLeod moved here from Armadale, West Lothian, Scotland. They met as solo performers at the Santa Rosa Music Festival in 1975, and they’ve been playing together ever since, digging deep into their English and Scottish roots for outrageous stories and traditional folk songs.
Dick and Allen trade off on guitar and mandolin, and their voices fit together as comfortably as a ploughman and a pint of ale. Whether they’re singing a cappella or inspiring the audience to join in, they bring heart and soul to their renditions of vivid traditional songs and tender ballads of the British Isles.
