Their achievements over the years include completing twenty eight spring tours twenty six festival appearances including Cromer, and seven albums, which is not bad for a band that was only doing one concert! Folk on the Pier producer, Scott Butler is delighted to bring them back to Cromer Pier on 25th April as a warm concert up before the main festival in May, itself in its twenty sixth year.
