Amy and Gavin Davenport sing songs about life, love and loss with a strong maritime undercurrent reflecting Amy’s former career as a professional tall-ships sailor and Gavin’s long career taking in The Albion Band, Crucible, The Morris on Band and extensive solo work along the way. Both come from well-known musical families and have shared roots in their current home city of Liverpool. They possess two strong and distinctive voices, whether singing lead or harmony, matched by instrumental accompaniment on guitar and cittern from Gavin.

Will Pound (harmonica and melodeon) and Jenn Butterworth (guitar) can only be described as virtuoso musicians in their own fields. When they decided to try working together something very special happened. The project began with a chance meeting at a folk session in 2018, leading to Will and Jenn’s music travelling around the world as a viral internet sensation. In their live shows, they play a game of ‘musical cat and mouse’; improvising and responding to each other, weaving virtuosic performances that are unique and in-the-moment as only two musicians highly accomplished in their craft can produce.
