Dog Watch

We are John and Joy Rennie and felt that, as a folk duo, we needed a snappy name so, having been Guide Dog puppy walkers for many years, thought our involvement with dogs and sea songs, made the name “Dogwatch” appropriate. We sing mainly traditional or traditional style folk songs, some made up of wonderful poetry set to music by Joy and a few that are all our own. John plays English concertina, Joy melodeons, recorders and digital piano. We sing lots of songs about the usual folkie subjects such as soldiers and milk maids but our main love is songs of the sea. We’ve recorded several albums which we’d be very happy to chat about if you’d like to ask us.
