ANDY SKELLAM: “Something new and rather good” – Gideon Coe BBC 6 Music
Andy Skellam creates an idiosyncratic blend of surreal folk & dissonant blues using acoustic/electric guitar, banjo and his baritone singing voice. His music reflects darkly humorous & deeply affecting absurdities.

He’s tall and thin, got cobwebs in his beard, falls asleep between sentences and hails from Herefordshire via Portsmouth. Andy’s voice is as mellow as a spadeful of Herefordshire soil in Autumn. His guitar playing is as steady as a grandfather clock showered by pine needles.

“A homespun sound and DIY ethic, something we much admire and are drawn to” – Folk Radio UK

BETH PORTERAs a multi-instrumentalist, collaborator, composer and songwriter, Beth has a passion for creating, an ear for listening, and a pure, unaffected voice that delivers beautifully original, understated yet powerful songs. Imagine Joanna Newsome goes to Nashville and writes a song with Anne Briggs and David Byrne from Talking Heads. She is a member of The Bookshop Band, Spell Songs (with Karine Polwart, Julie Fowlis, KrisDrever) and Red Carousel string quartet. Beth’s cello can be heard on hundreds of recordings, including the Oscar Nominated, and British Animation Award winning film score Robin Robin (Aardman / Netflix) which she composed with Ben Please.
