HELEN McCOOKERYBOOK

OUR WINTER SPECIAL LAST WEEKEND WAS HEADLINED BY THE DAINTEES FRONTMAN MARTIN STEPHENSON – AND ALSO FEATURED A DELIGHTFUL GUEST APPEARANCE FROM HIS PARTNER HELEN McCOOKERYBOOK (ONCE OF HELEN & THE HORNS AND THE CHEFS).
Highlights from both Helen and Martin’s sets can be heard in a recent edition of The Mouthcast (listen here). Earlier in the evening – after soundcheck and relaxing upstairs at Scunthorpe’s Café Indiependent before the show – Helen and Martin plus fiddle player Jim Morrison recorded a special ‘in session’ for us. Watching the performance just out of shot was guitarist Jim Hornsby, from whom Martin had borrowed an acoustic for the filming. The trio played LOVERMAN, a song from Helen and Martin’s 2009 joint album HAMILTON SQUARE. Lovely stuff…
