Paul and Liz Davenport sing songs from the English Tradition. Their repertoire is unusual and compelling, ranging from straight traditional renditions through self-penned material from Paul and son Gavin. The latter, though modern, certainly sounds traditional. Using sparse accompaniment in some songs, they sing mostly unaccompanied narrative songs and ballads. Theirs is a powerful, though deceptively simple delivery which sounds persuasively authentic.
Tegwen is a South Yorkshire songstress, with a voice described invariably as ‘both beautifully powerful and gently haunting’. Her songs are a mixture of lyrical catharsis and life-inspired story telling.
“…dig out the cloudy scrumpy , dig up the mandrake root . Empty the room of all soft furnishings. Inform all close friends that you have taken a sudden, unexpected leave of absence. .Close all the curtains , turn off the lights. Slump blindfolded and drunk into a hard wooden chair , turn up the stereo and listen.”
~ Keith Angel
