Well Dressed by Keith Kendrick & Sylvia Needham

Summary

Keith and Sylvia sing mainly English traditional and traditionally influenced contemporary songs and work extensively all over the UK, Europe and beyond with collectively over 80 years performing experience (and neither yet walks with a stick!).

Both have a very wide ranging repertoire, strong voices and uncannily compatible and complimentary styles of delivery, affording an exciting enhancement in duo and between them produce a striking acapella harmony sound. They also frequently accompany themselves and play lively dance tunes on three different systems of the only English invented musical instrument – the Concertina. And when they’re not doing that you’ll probably find them in nearest charity shop!

The Ensemble:
Keith Kendrick: Vocals, English and Anglo German Concertinas
Sylvia Needham: Vocals, McCann Duet Concertina
Bob Axford: Guitar
Jon Loomes: Hurdy Gurdy, Fiddle, Upright Piano
Michael Beeke: English Pipes, Whistle, Tuba
Johnny Adams: Vocals, Piano, Harmonium, Melodeon, Trombone, Fiddle
Gilly Loomes: Cornet, Hammered Dulcimer
