Fiddlers Dram

An English folk band formed by students at the University of Kent in the 1970s. They were regular members of the Duke of Cumberland Folk Club in Whitstable. In late 1979 they achieved chart success with Day Trip to Bangor. They actually went to Rhyll but it didn't scan as well as Bangor. The song was written by Debbie Cook. Their 'main band' was the Oyster Ceilidh Band which also included John Jones and Ian Kearey.
