Maddy Prior 2007

The first incarnation of The Girls included Rose Kemp (Maddy's daughter) and Abbie Lathe.

Maddy & The Girls
Claudia, Maddy & Abbie

They toured and made a CD, Bib & Tuck, based mainly on traditional and folk styles. The CD featured a selection of songs by Maddy, Abbie and Rose, favourite folk classics, contempory songs and The Cotton Triangle a song suite that described the Slave and Cotton trade of the 18th Century.

Rose bowed out to pursue her own career of songwriting and singing. She was replaced by Claudia Gibson and the whole endeavour took a sea-change.

Using the three-part harmony as a base they looked to current and recent writers for material, only using songs where they could radically change the arrangement.

This led to extraordinary versions of songs by Sam Brown, Keane, The Levellers, 10CC, Chrissie Hynde and others.
