Vicky Swann and Jonny Dyer first played at Furness Tradition in 2013 when they also combined with Nick Hennessey to perform ‘The Whispering Road’
Vicki (nyckelharpa, vocals, flute, assorted bagpipes) & Jonny (guitars, accordion, cowhorn, harpsichords) effortlessly blend traditional material with contemporary sounds. Their performances showcase new interpretations of old songs alongside original self penned tunes and new contemporary songs that are entirely at home in the tradition.
Out of this combination they have developed a sound that is both familiar and fresh. Strong believers in letting the music tradition live and breathe through sensitive interpretation, Vicki and Jonny allow the melody to sing without any constraints. their performances are packed with toe tapping tunes and songs of love, death, trains and dressing up (not always at the same time) all presented with sparkling gentle humour, lots of smiles and skilful musicianship.
