One of the foremost a capella groups on the British folk scene, Teeside brothers Tom, Chris, Steve & Mike have a telepathic sense of timing when performing together. Their renditions of traditionally orientated songs are full of powerful vocals, glorious harmonies, deep understanding and joy. Great songs combined with the brothers’ spontaneous humour mean we are sure to have a terrific evening.
Bryony and Alice are established performers of traditional English folk music, united by a mutual fascination with folk song and tune collections from their native county, West Yorkshire. Combining their respect and understanding of traditional song, music and dance with their own more contemporary style of folk performance, they present a unique repertoire of harmony, history and Northern banter.
Nick performs songs from the West Country and others he has received from the Travelling people with whom he has lived and worked. He has been singing and collecting traditional folk songs for more than forty years, accompanying himself with sensitive and carefully considered guitar arrangements. One of the best folk voices of his generation, Nick is informative and entertaining with a great sense of humour.
Brian is a compelling singer, a first-rate squeezebox player, and a skilled guitarist - one of the best Anglo-concertina players and equally good on melodeon – and a leading performer of the great Child ballads. Brian performs traditional and newer songs and tunes, with wild squeezebox excursions into ragtime and blues. Bursting with energy and dry humour, he is a truly entertaining performer.
Since concertina player Chris Sherburn and singer/guitarist Denny Bartley were joined by fiddler/singer Emily Sanders at the Everyman in 2015, they have become a well-established trio performing traditional English and Celtic music. The unique sound of Chris and Denny is underpinned by Emily’s strings and enhanced by her vocal harmonies. Soul-stirring songs, exhilarating tunes, and quick-witted banter.
