"a real taste of clotted cream folk – complete with fiddle, rainbows and hats. The style has a slight Irish twang, seasoned with humour, and a real political aftertaste ... a genuine higlight of the festival as a whole ... fabulous stuff" - Middlewich Folk n Boat Festival
Blurb: Two acoustic guitars, e-bow, fiddle, cello, three passionate voices and a set of incredibly moving and inspired songs. If there's one new and refreshing acoustic super-group to check out this year, this is it, with acclaimed songwriters Darren Poyzer and Kevin Farrell teaming up with former Incredible String Band (and current Galleon Blast) fiddler Fluff.

Performance Times: A trio performance ('public house / house concert set') is usually made up of two sets of around 45-60 minutes each. A trio concert performance ('theatre style') usually given as a support artiste, consists of one set of around 30-45 minutes. A festival set is usually between 45-60 minutes.
Performance Content: The songs are mostly original, wide ranging and accessible, the banter is lively and family friendly, and there are a handful of classic cover versions if required to suit most occasions. Additionally, Kevin Farrell can perform an outstanding solo acoustic set of original songs and a few more cover classics.
Technical Set-Up (1): I have my own equipment, ie sound system, projector and lights, to suit a small to medium sized venue, and public liability insurance should it be required. Our set-up time is one hour minimum, with ground floor access and easy load-in greatly preferred.
Technical Set-Up (2): Where there is a sound system 'in-house', we require three vocal mics, two guitar and one fiddle inputs (di), two monitors and at least 30 minutes sound check.
Publicity: A3 colour posters, social networking support and press releases are available if required. I'm very happy to oblige with media interviews at any and every opportunity.Fee: £300 (dependent on travel from Greater Manchester and accomodation if necessary).
