Although it’s few more weeks before The Demon Barbers are on the road again we are pleased to announce that Damien, Bryony & Will are taking their respective duos around the UK a lot sooner.
A chance to see a more traditional side of these award winning singers & musicians in more intmiate surroundings than their usual theatre and festival shows!
Nominated ‘Best Duo’ BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2010
Two of the finest exponents of Traditional Song in the United Kingdom; it is difficult to accept that these relatively young men, have a combined 50+ years experience of performing at Folk venues. Damien and Mike have a rich shared repertoire of traditional songs plus the work of modern folk writers such as Bellamy, Ewan MacColl and Mike Waterson.
“Under The Influence’ is chock full of nothing but great songs brilliantly sung”.
Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2

Bryony Griffith & Will Hampson
Bryony has been described as having “the vocal power of a young Norma Waterson, the poise and attitude of the late Sandy Denny and the stage presence of Janis Joplin.” Add to that her ‘deliciously rustic’ fiddle playing (Colin Irwin) and Will’s driving yet sensitive box playing and you get a distinctive repertoire of dark ballads, chorus songs and dance tunes delivered with good-humoured Yorkshire banter.
“Another new folk album worth noting is Lady Diamond by husband and wife Bryony Griffith and Will Hampson (Selwyn Music) which has some elegant, unflinchingly pure folk instrumentals. And Griffith’s stirring folk voice is absolutely lovely on the first rate Constant Lovers.”
