Barbara Dymock and Chris Marra at EFC / Edinburgh Folk Club
Methil born BARBARA DYMOCK learned Scottish and Irish traditional songs from her grandparents. As a skint student at Dundee, she took part in the university folk club and began taking a serious interest in music, "singing for her supper". Barbara became a founder member of the band Ceolbeg, along with the late Peter Boond and Kenny Hadden, and was also part of other musical collaborations including Rathlin and Palaver. More recently she appeared in the duo Sinsheen with Christine Kydd.

Barbaras middle name is Alice. As a bairn she refused to learn the deliberately misnamed Hard Hearted Barbara Alice from her Fife granny and to this day she has never sung Barbara Allen- nor that other Barbara by the Beach Boys. She still sings many of her grandparents songs  however and is delighted to have had numerous, recent opportunities to air them despite a 20 year break from performing during which she had three bairns and pursued a medical career. She did get a telling-off once, from a nursing sister, for singing Mrs McGrath to a Mrs McGrath, but nowadays people rarely tell her off for singing traditional songs, either solo, or with the talented and weel-kent singers and musicians she collaborates with from time to time.

Check out her latest collaboration with Dundee musician and producer Christopher Marra  Leaf an Thorn. Chris has been a musician since his teens, working in many distinct fields from bighair rock to sophisticated pop with Danny Wilson via Londons theatre land. The majority of Chris' time was spent recording and performing with his brother, the late Michael Marra, producing albums for Michael and the legendary Saint Andrew. As well as his musical collaboration with Barbara, his other current band is The Hazey Janes.
