Shine On by Keith Kendrick and Sylvia Needham


Vocal and instrumental music, social and ceremonial dance have all played a role in Keith Kendrick's career which has spanned nearly five decades. He looks for the best ways to communicate the inspiration that has motivated him. He has a vernacular delivery, which maintains respect for the music and combines with vocal and instrumental skills to make his performances a pleasure to listen to. If you want an example of someone for whom folk music and life have become completely inseparable - a true folk musician - look no further than Keith. His repertoire when singing with Sylvia comprises mainly English traditional and traditionally influenced contemporary songs. Both have strong voices and compatible and complimentary styles of delivery and they produce a striking acapella harmony sound. They also accompany themselves and play lively dance tunes on three different systems of the only English invented musical instrument - the Concertina.

"....breath taking harmony work that leaves the listener gasping............”
