Other Information:

Chris and Siobhan are resident singers at the Bothy folk club in Southport. Previously based in Southampton they have been performing music together for around 20 years and they have been members of several bands during that time including The Cluster of Nuts Band and The New St George

As a duo they are equally at home in an intimate acoustic setting or on the 'big stage'.

Chris and Siobhan were long-time members of Loose Screws Appalachian Dancers and String Band, along with Southampton-based Barry Wake who writes some of the songs in their repertoire, and with whom they perform occasionally as the trio Nelsons Wake.

Chris is also currently a member of the Liverpool bluegrass band The Merseybillies

Demo CD available on request, photos, music clips and more information can be found on Chris and Siobhan's website.

"Siobhan has a superb voice and whilst capable of delivering a tender traditional styled ballad, she also has the power to lift the roof if required... Chris's violin and viola playing is a rare treat" (Woven Wheat Whispers)

"Spine tingling vocals... complemented by sensitive fiddle" (Folk on Tap).
