I first came across this enchanting duo at the New Forest Folk Festival in 2017. Their performances were really enjoyable. One thing which particularly appealed to me was that their music showed immense flair, skill and happiness, but it was always supporting the vocals in a constructive manner allowing all of us to hear what was being sung.
This year they have released their album “Liberty Ship“. Most of the tracks have such feeling oozing throughout that they cling to the mind immediately, but others come and sit beside you and slowly but surely insinuate their way into your psyche. Which are which? I think that part of the pleasure of this duo’s music is that it is not a one size fits all, but rather each of us takes away a different but personal taste from the same offering.

I must be honest that when I looked around their website I was surprised to see Americana listed as I know that is not a genre which normally appeals to me but from Adam and Jayne I realised that I was not only hearing it but enjoying it too.
Oh, and Knitting Ann sends good wishes too.
