Enoch Train Sets Sail for 50 Young Passengers

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- Eight master musicians, 90 exotic instruments and hundreds of years of folk heritage-that is the formula for Enoch Train, the instrumental Americana folk ensemble whose modern interpretations of folk and hymn tunes were the musical backbone of Sea Trek 2001. Now the ensemble will put their music to work in a benefit concert on December 3 for the Skyline High School Orchestra.

Skyline High School's orchestra has been invited to play at the International Band and Orchestra Convention on December 19 in Chicago. They are the first Utah orchestra to be invited to play at that convention. The coveted invitation to that convention comes with a price tag-the students themselves must pay for the trip! Enoch Train will dedicate the proceeds of their December 3 concert to these young musicians who have distinguished themselves by their dedication.

The December 3 benefit concert will be held at the Skyline High School auditorium. Music begins at 7:30 p.m. A dinner will begin at 6 p.m. Tickets are $5 for the concert and an additional $3 to attend the 6 p.m. dinner. Tickets are available at the door, or by calling Skyline High at 801-273-2080.

Enoch Train will play one number with the Skyline Orchestra and then present a full evening of their trademark folk fusion hymn arrangements which were so popular this summer in Copenhagen, Esbjerg, Gothenburg, Oslo, Glasgow, Liverpool, Hull and Portsmouth. They played with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, on board the Staatsraad Lehmkuhl (the Norwegian tall ship), and in concerts across Northern Europe.

Enoch Train's founder, Clive Romney, is an alumnus of Skyline High. In his days there (last century!), Clive was orchestra president, folk club president, and a class officer. Clive is also a long-time friend of Richard Chatelain, the orchestra's conductor. "I couldn't turn down Rich's invitation after all Skyline did to foster my love for and abilities in music," Clive says. "Larry Bird and Donald Ripplinger (previous orchestra and choir leaders) were huge influences in my life and I owe them more than I can ever pay back. So I'll pay it forward."

The concert will include tunes from their debut self-titled album and from their recently-released second album, Set Sail. Set Sail features several hymn tunes that were sung at the embarkation of the ships from Albert Dock in Liverpool, ships which carried many of Enoch Train's own ancestors to America. Enoch Train will also perform "We Three Kings", which was honored at the 2001 Pearl Awards as "Holiday Recording of the Year".

Enoch Train features Janice Andersen on fiddle and guitar, Daron Bradford on woodwinds, Dave Compton on harmonica, keyboards and guitar, Rich Dixon on guitars, Tom Hewitson on mandolin, guitar and percussion, Rob Honey on bass, Jay Lawrence on drums and percussion, and Clive Romney on mandolin, guitar, accordion, and percussion.
