JEANNE & PHIL REVNELL

Jeanne
(vocal) and Phil Revnell
(guitar and allegedly vocal) have been
Residents at Croydon Folk Club for
nearly 20 years, and have been
singing together for twice that long.
Never overestimating their musical
abilities, their style has remained
simple and approachable, with plenty
of opportunity for audience
participation. The strength of the act
is Jeanne's voice, which has brought
pleasure to many throughout the
years.

They hale originally from South East
London, an area sadly lacking in
traditional folk song material (Not
many skylarks and ploughboys in
Catford!). Encouraged by John
Foreman, they turned their attention to the Music Hall, and their presentation is now
peppered by Music Hall songs, both well known and neglected. They draw their material
from a wide range of sources, both traditional and written, believing that the Folk
Movement should not be hampered by unnecessary restrictions, but never straying too far
from their roots.
