FLIBBERTIGIBBET was established in Johannesburg, South Africa during the apartheid, when former MELLOW CANDLE members Alison O'Donnell and David Williams met Joanna (Jo) Dudding and Barrie Glenn at the Mangles folk club which was famous for launching numerous of the day's South African folk musicians. Despite the country of origin of the group, their inspiration lied in British and Irish folklore, the sound of their recordings taking us back to the likes of STEELEYE SPAN, MELLOW CANDLE, but also to hints of early FAIRPORT CONVENTION. The band made several appearances on radio and television shows, and also performed at the Market Caf? in the Market Theatre, a place renowned for its apartheid opposition. Barrie and Jo, who eventually got married, left the group in 1979, being replaced by Heather Lawn and Virgil Ellis. However, they continued playing live together only for a short period of time due to financial problems, before breaking up.

In 1978 FLIBBERTIGIBBET released their sole studio album, "Whistling Jigs to the Moon", which was initially a very rare South-African record, until it saw the light of day on CD format courtesy of Kissing Spell and later of Si-Wan Records. In 2004 a compilation of unreleased live and studio recordings from the time of their album, was put out and entitled "My Lagan Love". Both releases hold the archetypal British folk rock sound of the 70's, thus making them a group recommended mainly for the fans of the genre.
