The songs themselves are always given centre stage but they are brought to life with sensitive musical arrangements and stunning vocals. There is an integrity that shines through their performances and a common thread of political struggle, resistance, and justice.

They have been heavily influenced by the songs and singers of East Anglia, where they both grew up, but their music also reflects the diversity of voices within the folk world.

Celtic Fusion, Tuesdays 8.00-10.00pm and Saturdays 5.00-7.00pm and Catch Up anytime.
