Jeff Davis, Andy Leaney, Martin Stringer, John Laidlaw.
John Laidlaw (photo 6) Yup, that’s me. Playing with Rude Knot To, could be 99, 00 or 01 (although I suspect it really is 2001) – difficult to remember when you’re in a band with Jeff Davis and Martin Stringer.
Dawn Leaney….My late husband Andy Leaney (photo 2) with his beloved Ovation guitar playing at Hastings Beach concert.
Andy Walker…Is that the same John Laidlaw that was in The Tony Ashton Trio with Pete Shelton?
John Laidlaw… I don’t recall either the Tony Ashton Trio, or Pete Shelton – sorry!
Dawn Leaney… Anymore photos of Andy Leaney on that day? … I remember being in the audience! 🙂 xx
Alan Esdaile…. If anymore crop up I will send to you Dawn, anyone else got any?
Jeff Davis… The only time John and Andy played together with Rude Knot To, was on tour in America. Andy joined the band when John moved to USA. Rude Knot To Toured the USA on five occasions. Aided by the Twang Dragons who we brought over to play in England.
Jeff Davis… I have attached a Rude Knot To track from the album Distance Lands an epic John Laidlaw solo. gives you some context of what this trio was about.
