Horncastle Fayre is an incredibly rare 1973 album of medieval folk by The Bull Minstrels, and issued in tiny quantities on an obscure label.
The album is sometimes listed as being by Horncastle Fayre but a reading of the sleeve notes makes it clear that the group are The Bull Minstrels, so called because they recorded at the Bull Hotel.
The group are a seven piece band and they tackle traditional material such as Foggy Den, Pastime With Good Company, and John Barleycorn using Crumhorns, Recorders, Psaltery as well as more modern instruments.
