Playing original material inspired by English and French folk dance music, this one-off project was formed in 1997 by piper Chris Walshaw and hurdy gurdy players Nigel Eaton (b. 3 January 1966, Lyndhurst, Hampshire, England) and Cliff Stapleton. With cittern player Ian Luff lending additional support, the trio’s sole recording English Hurdy-Gurdy Music provided a fine updating of the dance tradition with the rhythmic interplay of Eaton and Stapleton’s hurdy gurdies to the fore.
