Marnie: vocal and acoustic guitar.

David North: drums, mandolin, keyboards and guitar.
Jon Maybey: electric guitar, mandolin and ‘live’ loops.
“It’s great to have flexibility in a band.
Whilst the full band is a joy to watch and listen to, it can also operate in a small venue or an event with a tight budget. Also, It’s not always possible for the 5 musicians to be available all the time! The ability to downsize or call on a substitute musician keeps the show alive.
This flexible approach was necessary throughout the pandemic which is when the band developed a method to make it work. It’s given us a large repertoire of original and traditional songs and instrumentals to work with. Frequent rehearsals keep us up to speed and prepared for any event. We can walk on to a large festival stage or somebody’s living room and guarantee a great performance!
