Description: These two make a quite exceptional duo, combining thrilling fiddle performance with some of the finest melodeon playing to be heard on the folk scene. Having started playing melodeon when he was just ten years old, Saul has been a professional musician on and off since his late teens, and has played with some of the greats of the scene, most notably with Eliza Carthy and Nancy Kerr in the Kings of Calicutt, Waterson:Carthy, and most recently, Faustus. He also spent a year as ‘Songman’ in the West End production of ‘War Horse’. His voice is rich and warm, and beautifully suited to traditional English songs. Likewise, James has been playing violin from a young age, mostly self-taught, and turned professional very early on, working with Jim Moray, Mawkin:Causley and others, and later appeared in a number of television series and feature films. The pair met and worked together at Sidmouth Folk Week some ten years ago and became firm friends, the music flowing whenever they get together. As a duo, they harness all the subtleties of traditional music while still producing an exciting and energetic display of musicianship. The joy with which they experience music together is hypnotic, captivating and addictive.
