This is a lively duo presenting a mixture of music from traditional and contemporary folk to ragtime and blues.
Pamela’s versatile voice is equally suited to traditional songs as it is to the more gutsy blues style of Bessie Smith.
Whilst never detracting from the vocals, Paul's accomplished guitar playing acts as the perfect foil to Pam's voice. They guarantee an entertaining evening. They started their musical careers after winning the Brewhouse music prize in a U.K. folkfinder competition in the late 80's

John has a rich, powerful, but also subtle voice, which he ably complements with guitar or bodhran. He sings a mixture of traditional, not-so-traditional and self-penned songs.
