Flanders And Swann Tribute Duo:
David Reed and John Hiley both grew up in Windermere and were acquainted from an early age. Though at the Grammar School at the same time neither spoke to the other, because boys in long trousers didn’t converse with those in short trousers. They both took part in the annual school G&S productions in the Royalty Cinema, Bowness, annually metamorphosing for a week into leading ladies. Both played, though not simultaneously, the beguiling Phoebe Meryll in the Yeoman of The Guard. David has continued his singing career despite interruptions from his day job as a schoolteacher and is now in great demand as a tenor, which is what it costs for his services. John, meanwhile, pursued a career in high tension, rather like his violin strings, though his high notes now require a safety net. Returning to the Lake District about a decade ago, they did finally speak to each other, forming the FAST Duo in 2013, to bring joy to deprived regions of the British Isles.
