Welcome to the Hunter Muskett website.

  • Doug Morter - acoustic and electric guitars, vocals
  • Rog Trevitt - bass guitar, mandolin, vocals


New Muskett album - Roll On

We are happy to announce that the new Muskett album 'Roll On' is ready and available, both at our gigs and from this site (via the link is at the foot of this page).
Once again we have been joined by some notable musicians: Paul Burgess (drums), BJ Cole (pedal steel) and Henrick Vestergaard (harmonica). We have also included two of Doug's earlier recordings (suitably Muskettised) which include performances by Jerry Donahue. One of these, 'Old Boy', may be Jerry's last recorded work.

Previous Muskett Albums - availability

Of our previous records only the Bradley's album 'Hunter Muskett', remains officially out there as a physical product. This is now on CD (with three additional Bradleys-era tracks) on the Wasabi label available from Airmail Recordings, Tokyo.
Both 'That Was Then This Is Now' and 'Unafraid and Sober' can be downloaded via Bandcamp. (Unfortunately, for copyright reasons,'Walk Away Renee' and 'The Scarecrow' are not included.)

Muskett - Dutch Folk Pioneers

Back in the day Tom Steenbergen booked a host of UK 'folk' acts onto tours of Holland. We stayed with Tom whilst over there playing the usual places: De Toverbal in Maassluis, Theater De Lantaren in Rotterdam, The Paradiso in Amsterdam... Back in the UK Tom caught up with us in Island studios during our recording sessions with Keith Relf.
After rising to the dizzy heights of marketing director at Polygram Tom has finally taken time out to write down his memories from those early days. His book, 'Folk Pioneers - Roots & Singer-Songwriters', contains a wealth of detail on the visiting acts - Hunter Muskett included. Exactly what Tom says about us is unclear as, despite the English title, the book is in Dutch!

 Muskett CD released in Japan

Our 1973 album Hunter Muskett has been re-released in Japan by Air Mail Recordings of Tokyo. The CD using the original 70s artwork features 12 tracks: the original nine tracks, the John Blair single and, for the first time since the 1970s, the two tracks from 'Bradleys live at the Marquee'.

Muskett in WH Smith

Michael Bjorn’s article on the band is now available in ‘Shindig’ magazine issue #133. The article, to be found under the ‘The Vinyl Clicks’ section, covers Muskett in the Bradleys era and includes the photo of the band performing at the Festival Hall London in, 1973.  Shindig magazine is available on the shelves of all good news-agents.

Tending the Pale Bloom – on-line interview

Texas retrospective website ‘Tending the Pale Bloom’ approached the band for an on-line interview on the Hunter Muskett story. For those with an hour and a half to spare Roger’s exhaustive (not to say exhausting) conversation with Greg Chance is now available on:

The French Connection
Bradley’s CD to coincide with Keith Relf Biography

A Heart Full of Soul: The Life of the Yardbird’s Keith Relf written by US author David French and published by McFarland Books is now available in the UK.  This is the first full biography of the singer and harmonica player.

As Keith produced our 1973 album ‘Hunter Muskett’ David asked us to help him with a few memories from those times, both in the studio and later on tour with the Bradley’s Roadshow. Sadly we were unable to provide a photo of us with Keith (as far as we know none were taken), but David has kindly included the album sleeve in his book.

Many thanks to Yardbird expert Josh Cicek who also helped with the book. Josh contacted us from Australia with some Muskett tracks copied from Keith’s personal tapes – including an alternative version of Laze Around All Day.

The Hunter Muskett CD re-released to coincide with the book is now sold out.

Leave It With Mine – Archie Fisher

After performing Terry’s song ‘Leave It With Mine’ at the Edinburgh Fringe, Archie Fisher has now released a live version. It appears on the CD ‘The Best Times After All’ recorded in Canada by Archie along with Garnett Rogers. There is also a projected studio version in the pipeline. This is in keeping with Archie’s habit of recording Terry’s songs twice – he recorded two versions of ‘Silver Coin’ some years ago.

Terry's solo CD – Falling More Slowly

All but two of the songs are Hiscock originals and Terry plays the instruments himself with just a little help from Tom Leary on fiddle. Noel Gander and Gayna Taylor contribute vocals and John Ellis, who did Muskett's 'That Was Then This Is Now' CD, engineered at his Limefield Studio.
We could tell you how good it is but why not read an impartial review in FATEA on-line magazine Terry Hiscock CD review?
Copies of the CD are available by contacting Terry's website or by going to one of his solo gigs also listed on the site (assuming he remembers to take them along).

As always, if you would like to get in touch do feel free to use our e-mail link on the ‘Contact Us’ page

Best Wishes

Hunter Muskett
