Holly and The Reivers, a band brought together through their love of singing together and telling old stories to their audiences.
Bertie Armstrong, Merle Harbron and Holly Clarke create a musical setting for their songs by combining the musical styles of Old time banjo, Scottish fiddle and the Ballad singing, as well as bringing forth their own compositions that have been deeply influenced by these traditions.
The intricate melodies and words they have woven together shine through with their soaring three part harmonies and driving instrumental pieces.
Jack Hogsden is making waves on the folk circuit as an accomplished singer, guitarist, melodeon player and more. Working with a variety of materials, he performs songs and tunes from his home county of Sussex and the surrounding areas, as well from North America, Scotland, Australia and beyond. With such a diverse repertoire, much of his music is taken from rare and unique sources, either written or recorded, and these have been reworked to provide tasteful accompaniments and arrangements that emphasise the stories he tells.
