The Jurby Mountain Daredevils were originally:
Sid: Vocals + Guitar
Keith "Hill Billy" Corkill: Guitar + Banjo
This local group of lads emerged from Will's basement. They like straight
Blues and play it because well, er...they like it. There's no better reason.
They say that they put their set together for their first Fest (2002) in a
hurry but since then things have moved on apace and now Will Radcliffe is
living in France and Keith has taken a break. So they are now a four piece with
Patrick (Pegs) Jerry
Simon (Bingo) Morris
on Drum and
Bob (Bobby-Bob) Jones
on Bass. Its all still acoustic with one semi-acoustic. If
Will (Catflap) Radcliffe
is on the Island he might well play along on a couple of numbers; although,
aparently the band work on the basis that he won't be around and keep a couple
of numbers up their sleeves just for him.
