Plan are a male trio, specialising in strong harmony singing,
largely based within English traditional music, but also including
songs, ancient and modern, from other backgrounds and traditions.
They are based in West Cornwall and are all seasoned performers
on the folk music scene. While material tends to be delivered
'a capella' style, there are always songs that the band would
like to do which demand accompaniment. So, where appropriate,
they have developed, alongside their unaccompanied material, a
body of songs which are enhanced by Peter's guitar.
you're interested in finding out what Baldrick's Plan are about,
and what they sound like, please visit the Samples
page, where examples of their singing can be heard.
if you're down this way, don't forget that Baldrick's Plan are
resident singers at the Singing
Cellar Folk and Acoustic Music Club at the Turk's
Head, Chapel Street, Penzance on the third Friday of each month.
It's a great venue with a fabulous atmosphere and is just the
place to air your lungs! We'd love to see you there whether you
are a listener or a performer.

Plan thrilled a Bodmin Folk Club audience with their strong harmonies
over a whole range of songs. The three blokes like to have fun
at their gigs, and so does the audience. This was their first
visit to Bodmin and I feel certain it will not be their last."
