Trader Horne Live
Venue: Bush Hall, London
Duo's sole album Morning Way celebrated in 45th Anniversary show
For devotees of a long-lost 1970 album that has achieved near-mythical status, this is a somewhat magical night. Trader Horne were a short-lived British duo made up of folk singer and Fairport Convention alumnus Judy Dyble (who also sang with Giles, Giles & Fripp and The Incredible String Band) and all-round musician-writer Jackie McAuley, who’d played with Them. Named (the story goes) after John Peel’s nanny (surname Horne) and explorer Trader Horn, they toured with Yes and Genesis, did TV appearances with Cat Stevens, had sleeve notes written by Brian Patten and then split just as their big break was mooted.
