Trader Horne

Genres: Folk
Decades: 2000s


Trader Horne were a folk-based duo, comprising Judy Dyble (13 February 1949, London, England) and Jackie McAuley (b. 14 December 1946, County Derry, Northern Ireland). Dyble had been the first female singer in Fairport Convention, but left following the completion of the group’s debut album. She briefly appeared in the line-up of Giles, Giles And Fripp in 1968, dropping out after barely a month. McAuley was an early member of Them with brother Pat, who together formed the Belfast Gypsies in the wake of their erstwhile band’s disintegration. Despite achieving some success in Scandinavia, the new group broke up in 1967. Trader Horne’s lone album was released in 1970 and featured assistance from former Them flautist, Ray Elliot. Dyble was replaced by Saffron Summerfield soon afterwards but this line-up did not release anything. McAuley subsequently embarked on a solo career.
