Traditional and Contemporary Song in Three-Part Harmony


As many of you know, Baldrick's member George Chippendale has become a victim of his own success, and is spending more and more time working on his freelance engineering business, while still managing to keep his other employment going, in spite of a taxing shift system.

Obviously, something had to give and, unfortunately, it means that he will no longer be able to devote time to singing with Baldrick's Plan. He will, however, be fulfilling any existing bookings and will also continue to perform with Steve and myself at long-running events such as Singing Cellar and the Home-made Music Show.

He has also kindly offered to help in the induction into the group, of his replacement, Jinks Jenkin, known to many for his work with Jinks's Stack, Hunters' Moon, Rum and Shrub and Thorn & Roses (a fine pedigree indeed!).

Anyway.... onward and (hopefully) upward!

Baldrick's 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.

If 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.

Also, 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' Head, Chapel Street, Penzance on the fourth 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.
