On their second visit to tynefolk, Caffrey, McGurk, Madge delivered an eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary songs performed in their own special style. Be it Lancashire hunting songs or tales of the sea CMM will not disappoint. A great night, thanks. Lindsey Thornton. Tynefolk Folk Club 11 July 2019

I'm currently enjoying a brilliant night at the Wurzel Bush with Caffrey, McGurk and Madge. What soul moving harmonies. In love with this sound. Great night Hannah Painting. Wurzell Bush FC Rugby. 7 May 2019

Well, a night I was really looking forward to, and it fully lived up to expectations, two stunning sets from Nick Caffrey, Ed McGurk, and Robin Madge, they were simply magnificent. Great harmony singing and tasteful musical arrangements from these three fine gents had the audience enthralled, so many comments at the end of the night saying "That was a proper folk night!" and in fact I can't find better words than that! Malc Gurnham, Bedworth Folk Club - 11 April 2019

Thanks for another excellent night. I am sure we'll have you back at the Bridge in the not-too-distant future & am looking forward to seeing/hearing you all again at Blaydon in the summer. A great night. Peter Armstrong, The Bridge Folk Club, Newcastle - March 2019

Very positive comments regarding your performance last Sunday - more to the point I thoroughly enjoyed it. We'll definitely have to get you back next year! Brain Jary - South Shields Folk Club - March 2019

Caffrey McGurk and Madge. Organisers, if you have not heard this trio, check them out, they completely blow me away each time I hear them. Lorna Davis North Staffs Online Folk Diary. October 2018

Caffrey McGurk Madge really shone on Wednesday night. They gave us two sets of songs, most of which were different in style and content to the usual offerings, well researched by Nick, and ranging from contemporary to traditional, a few well known but mostly songs I have not heard before - - -  All well accompanied by Ed's excellent guitar work and Robin's complex and well thought out Anglo Concertina playing.
WELL DONE and Thank You guys, that was a memorable evening and the audience loved it, we had loads of good comments afterwards. The Moorcock Acoustic Music Night October 2018

They were fabulous! Sarah Cockburn-Price. The Moorcock Acoustic Music Night

Many thanks to Caffrey McGurk Madge for a wonderful evening of music. Great songs, harmonies and humour. Topic Folk Club Bradford September 2018

Now a CMM gig is like the best folk album, songs performed exquisitely, superb harmonies plus some great guitar picking from Ed, augmented by Robin's concertina playing and bass voice, a real pleasure. I would happily have listened to them for another hour without getting bored. Jamie Blatchley. CMM perfomance at The Barlow, Edgworth. May 2018
