The Corrie Folk Trio & Paddie Bell   •   Discography

The Corrie Folk Trio (originally known as "The Corrie Voices") was formed in Scotland by Bill Smith, Ron Cruikshank, and banjo player Andy Turner. Roy Williamson joined in 1962 after Turner dropped out, and the group changed their name to The Corrie Folk Trio. Ron Cruikshank fell ill before the group's scheduled performance at the Edinburgh Festival, and Ronnie Browne and Paddie Bell joined.

In 1964, The Corrie Folk Trio and Paddie Bell (CFT & PB) became the resident folk group on the BBC's "The Hoot'nanny Show". In 1965, Paddie Bell left the group to have her child and later pursued a solo career. The group continued for another year until Bill Smith left in January 1966. Roy & Ronnie continued as a duo, shortening their group name to The Corries.
