Wight Cockade by The Dollymopps

Summary

The Dollymopps are a trio that sing - largely - unaccompanied songs from the folk tradition of Southern England -with a particular emphasis on songs collected from their native Isle of Wight.

The current line up of Virgil and Dorana Philpott, and Justin Smith, have been together since 2005. Originally inspired by the harmonies of Sussexís Copper Family,their singing began to develop a truly individual character after the discovery of a rich seam of local, traditional, source material in 2008.
