Bass and Taylor

When folk group, Two Coats Colder reached the end of its 8-year life in 2020, their songwriters, Anna Bass and Ray Taylor decided to set out as a duo. Covid stepped in, but now they're well underway and many of you will have enjoyed their performance at Boar's Bridge Festival. The songs we grew to love with the group are now being added to by this impressive duo to provide a cornucopia of creativity. You can't help enjoying their performances.


"What a great choice of material including (Anna’s) haunting self-penned work, lovely harmonies, and a really strong sense of knowledge of and empathy with the tradition. It's definitely onwards and upwards for Bass and Taylor as a duo.” - Marion Treby (Cambridge Folk Club 2021)

John Ward Trio

The John Ward Trio brings together John, Lynne and Les whose powerful 3-part harmonies blend to give a richer life to John’s original songs and to his traditional repertoire. Accompanied by guitar, double bass, mandolin, harmonica, whistles and bodhran, and with the familiar, relaxed banter, stories and humour, the Trio delights folk club and festival audiences around the country. John is an East Anglian boy and, when the occasion demands, the Trio love to specialise in John’s East Coast heritage songs and traditional music of the land and the sea. “The best trad folk music set I have ever seen. Literally.” Attila the Stockbroker.

Bird in the Belly

Bird in the Belly are a Brighton-based Folk group consisting of folk-duo Hickory Signals (Laura Ward and Adam Ronchetti), alt-folk singer-songwriter Ben Webb (Jinnwoo, Green Ribbons), and multi-instrumentalist and producer Tom Pryor. Together they have collected little known and forgotten lyrics, poems and stories from around the UK, and set them to their own “hypnotically original compositions” (fRoots). Their sound is raw and bare-boned with “distinctively contemporary and earthy vocalising” (R2 Magazine) – and harks back to the 1960’s Folk Revival sound.

 

"A musically diverse, fresh and compelling set of songs [...] a fascinating debut from a distinctive new group" - Songlines Magazine (June 2018)


"Strong folk a-cappella singing - distinctively contemporary and earthy vocalising - haunting fiddle playing - timeless acoustic guitar picking - and classic rocking rhythms"  - Colin Bailey, R2 Magazine


They took the club by storm last time they came and we’re not averse to some more of that!
