Steve began playing the hurdy gurdy in 1993, adding this instrument to the sound of the recently formed medieval music ensemble Misericordia, which he founded with Anne Marie Summers. With Andy, Steve plays hurdy gurdy and cittern but he also plays gothic harp and citole. Steve is also fast gaining a reputation for his work with the Jackie Oates band.
Andy has a repertoire of mainly traditional song from the British Isles including the South West of England. His reputation as a strong performer continues to grow with increasing appearances at folk festivals and folk clubs across England.
"An excellent singer and instrumentalist who performs with the skill and taste of a master craftsman." - Pete Coe
Steve and Andy form an extremely versatile duo with a unique approach to traditional songs and tunes. From powerful, driving tunes to beautiful haunting songs from their native Devon performed on hurdy gurdy, cittern, guitar and bouzouki.
