Laura Smyth & Ted Kemp

Laura Smyth and Ted Kemp perform traditional songs from England and beyond, with special attention given to their respective homes in the North West and East Anglia. While placing a great value on unaccompanied solo and harmony singing, they also accompany themselves on English concertina, 5-string banjo, cello, and guitar.

Laura and Ted interpret and deliver their music with a reverence for traditional performers and source material, taking influence from the classic folk revival performers of the 60s and 70s, whilst achieving a style that is very much their own.

Their debut EP, The Charcoal Black and the Bonny Grey, produced by Rob Harbron (Fay Hield and the Hurricane Party, The Full English) is their interpretation of 5 songs collected from or set in Lancashire, featuring guest fiddler Laurel Swift.

Len Graham

County Antrim born, Len Graham has been a full-time professional traditional singer since 1982. After he won the All Ireland Fleadh Cheoil na hEireann traditional singing competion in 1971 his reputation began to spread, and at the same time his own passion for the songs of his native Ulster was growing. From the early 1960s Len sought out and recorded older singers such as Eddie Butcher and Joe Holmes.

Over the years, Len has collaborated and worked with numerous musicians, poets and storytellers. His association with the late John Campbell brought storytelling and song to a world audience. Their work together over twenty years made a significant contribution toward creating a deeper cross-community understanding of shared cultural traditions during many years of conflict in the north of Ireland.

Moore Moss Rutter

Tom Moore, Archie Churchill-Moss and Jack Rutter hail from three distinct regions of the UK they combine musical material, style and tradition from Norfolk, Somerset and Yorkshire respectively. Since 2009, Moore Moss Rutter have been playing as a trio, meticulously reworking English tunes and compositions into sets and songs which have been described as intelligently crafted musical adventures. Often praised for musical maturity and sophistication, it is their aim to carefully create soundscapes of mellow and precisely engineered beauty as well as wild builds of tension and tempestuous climaxes. The trio have performed widely, at venues and events ranging from Glastonbury, to folk clubs and living rooms. Moore Moss Rutter are winners of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award 2011.
