Colin Thompson "Three Knights" 1980

FolkPhile:
Here is a UK folk LP. Colin Thompson is very talented both as a singer and as a guitarist. The arrangements are rather unusual.

Comments from his current website:

"Karen & Colin from North Lincolnshire are continuing to gain a reputation as excellent performers. Originally a classical guitarist, Colin has combined elements of classical and traditional styles and the distinctive rhythms and decorations of Scottish pipe tunes which he has adapted for guitar. Karen has explored a range of musical genres from choral singing to punk rock.
Together they have created a refreshing sound, setting poetry to self-composed tunes, finding little known traditional ballads and performing well-known songs in an individual manner. This provides an interesting and varied repertoire of love songs, wicked tales, pirate ballads and much more, all underpinned by the couple's obvious love of their music and good-humoured banter."

It's good to see that Colin is still performing, now with his wife. The website URL is:

Thanks for all of the wonderful music! Thanks also to visitors who share their music. Fantastic!!!
