  1. Hi
    Rick and Helen
    Just came across your info and it brought back many happy memories of my time at Rosslyn Chapel and of your many visits of cours. I still have your pattern for mediavel tent never got round to making it though.
    We are now living in Burntisland Fife having been retired for many many years. Let me know if you are ever back in Scotland performing as we would love to see you again
    Best Wishes Judy

    • Hi Judy,
      Thank you for your kind words. We don’t often play in Scotland but we’re at Traquair House this summer and hope to return next year. Keep an eye on our diary page and it will be posted ther if we are booked to return.
      Kind regards,
      Nellie and Rick Heavisides

  2. Hi there. Strange as it seems with the time spent online these days I never thought to search for you. As a young family we were members of English Heritage, we had the delight of seeing you perform on a few occasions and, ageing us, bought Empire Lines on cassette. This accompanied us on every outing and holiday for too many years to contemplate.
    Similar to other comments posted we ‘lost’ the cassette to a savage car tape mechanism and being irreparably damaged was disposed of.
    I’ve searched on AppleMusic and cannot find your presence. This is extremely disheartening (especially based on some ‘music’ that exists there).
    We were reminiscing and yourselves, and specifically Empire Lines, was fondly remembered.
    Do you have any copies, in any medium at all, available to purchase?
    I must add that our children, now 24 & 22, albeit having differing musical tastes still remember and miss listening to your wonderful music.
    If you no longer reproduce music then, as they say, ce’st la vie. But thank you for the happiest of memories you’ve supplied.

    • Hi Roy,
      Thank you so much for your kind words. Unfortunately we no longer sell CDs or cassettes as we do not perform as much as we once did and actually consider ourselves more live performers than recording artists – recording was always a painful process for us! Sadly, we do not have any copies of our music in a format we can let you have either. I would be scared to listen to it after all this time. Best left in the past I believe!
      Thank you for cheering up my day.

      Kind regards,
      Nellie (Helen)

  3. On the 26th September 1992 at Rievaux I happened to have with me a high quality VHS recorder and film 45 min of your performance.
    My son is going to transfer it to disk. I am also going to take off the sound and put it onto a memory stick for the car. Does any of this interest you at all?

  4. Hi Rick and Helen (Nellie)
    I don’t expect you to remember me but I have fond memories of watching you both play gorgeous music at English Heritage sites in the late 1980s / early 1990s – thrilled to see you are still performing.
    At the time I was married to Matt, who died of cancer, we were living in Fareham. I remarried, got divorced, remarried, and moved to Orkney! In between I did a couple of archaeology degrees and taught archaeology A level.
    Now I work as a tourist guide and celebrant (I get to legally marry people).
    If you ever come up to Orkney, do please get in contact, and ‘thank you for the music’.

  5. Hi my name is Stuart Worth I am from Horsforth Leeds and I think Rick was one of my neighbors during a period during the early 70’s. We were both bikers and if correct Rick went to college in Huddersfield whilst I went to university in Manchester.
    I now live in France and if I am correct it would be great to make contact again.
    Let me know if I am correct and we can talk again.
    Contact me on email:
    Phone: 0044(0)7714413014
    Kind regards

  6. Hi Rick and Helen,

    Your diary informs that you will be in Hull on 29th & 30th July, however the event website advises that you will be there on 30th & 31st July. Please advise which is the correct dates you will be there. Kind regards, Peter
