absolutely delighted to introduce our new member, Helen Reynolds,,
who joined the band back
in November and has proved herself to be an amazingly fast learner,
so much so that, within six months, we have a full repertoire
ready to delight our audiences. Helen is born and bred in Cornwall
(so Jinks no longer feels culturally challenged) and, besides
having a wonderful singing voice, is more than adept on whistle
Plan are an exciting, four-piece folk band, specialising in strong
harmony singing, largely based within English traditional music,
but also embracing 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 often songs that the band
would like to do which demand instrumental accompaniment. So,
where appropriate, they have developed, alongside their unaccompanied
material, a considerable body of songs which are accompanied by
a combination of guitar, Portuguese guitarra, whistle and fiddle.

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."
