The Laners have been entertaining audiences in pubs and clubs and at festivals for a quarter of a century, and have had various formations over the years. For most of the time, they've been a four-piece group but are now a trio - Dave Tarry (now the only original member), Derek Wheeler and Clive Brooks. Most of their material comprises English traditional folk songs but they also sing some shanties and an increasing number of the many fabulous contemporary songs that are coming into the tradition. Almost all of their songs have big choruses, so audience participation is mandatory; just sitting and listening isn't an option.
