Traditional and Contemporary Song in Three-Part Harmony

 

 

Peter Wray, Jinks Jenkin and Steve Lavington are Baldrick's Plan, a harmony trio specialising in traditional and more recent folk song, mainly English but with a nod and a wink to Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Although they live in Cornwall, they don't tend to sing Cornish material, believing that there are so many other artists in the area who already do this so admirably.

Who's Who... ?

Peter Wray

Peter hails from the North East of England. He is a long-established singer and musician, and has performed at many clubs and festivals throughout the country, whether singing unaccompanied, a capella with renowned 70's group Willard's Leap, or with multi-instrumentalist bands, as well as pursuing a well-respected solo practice. Peter enjoys a reputation as a fine interpreter of traditional and contemporary song and as a performer who truly sings from the heart.
 
 
 
 

Jinks Jenkins

Jinks' Initial folk interest began during 60s revival period, attending Botallack Count House and Pipers clubs in West Cornwall. He moved on to male voice choir singing for a number of years, performing throughout the country including London’s Albert Hall.
Later, Jinks became a founder member of Cornwall’s oldest shanty group Rum and Shrub, performing in maritime festivals in the UK, Europe and latterly the USA. Together with Graham O’Callaghan and Mike Kessell Jinks formed Jinks’ Stack famed for its close harmonies and boisterous presentation, followed later by Hunters Moon with Niall Timmins and Mike Kessell a short lived close harmony group nonetheless much respected for its “off the wall” harmonies
Throughout the last 20years jinks has also performed as Thorn and Roses wit Sylvia Flether and Rowena Metters.
Being the only Cornishman in Baldrick.s Plan, Jinks faces an uphill cultural struggle
 
 
 
 

Steve Lavington

Steve has sung in many choirs and many venues - from St Paul's Cathedral to the Birmingham Hippodrome. Having spent his earlier years on competitive sport at an international level and his career as an educational psychologist, he now gains real enjoyment from solo and close harmony singing. Although a relative newcomer to the folk scene, he has a genuine love and enthusiasm for the singing of British folk song, and his style of performance is ideally suited to the material the group presents.

 

 

Also, don't forget that we host the Singing Cellar Folk and Acoustic Music Club at the Turk's Head, Chapel Street, Penzance on the fourth Friday of each month. It's a great little venue with a fabulous atmosphere and acoustics, and is just the place to air your lungs! We'd love to see you there whether you are a listener or a performer.
