Derek Sarjeant & Hazel King "Folk Matters" 1973

English folk singer Hazel (King) Sarjeant was born in 1948. Hazel's beautiful, pure voice was recognized at an early age and by 15 she was performing at folk clubs in and around London. In 1967, she won the national "British Folk and Beat Contest" held at Hammersmith Town Hall, London. The next year she was invited by Derek Sarjeant, operator of the Surbiton and Kingston Folk Club. one of Britain's largest and most popular venues, to join him as a resident singer. Together they hosted virtually every touring American folk artist daring the 1960s and '70s. In 1968 they formed the Derek Sarjeant Folk Trio with Graham Bradshaw. and continued to perform as a duo after Graham's departure, ultimately marrying in the mid '70s. With a brief pause in the mid-to-tate-'80s to raise their children the duo performed continuously until a few months prior to Hazel's death. Her warm and engaging personality was only surpassed by the beauty of her voice. She will be sadly missed. especially by her husband Derek and family, and all those she touched with her music and her grace.

Hi Lizardson
I was very pleased to find the Derek and Hazel Sarjeant “Folk Matters” on your site. It brought back lots of good memories and I tried to find more. I eventually tracked Derek Sarjeant down through his website http://www.dereksarjeant.co.uk/. The good news is that Derek has 6 CDs and 2 cassettes available to buy at £5 each. Further details from: dereksarjeant@hotmail.com
