A chance meeting around a songwriters’ showcase campfire in 2018 led Clare Coltart and Chris Hytch to discover they shared a passion for the history and folk tales of Old Cornwall and form this contemporary Cornish folk duo.
Their original songs sing tales of ambitious bal maidens, duplicitous wreckers, murder on Bodmin moor, spriggans, giants and brownies, amongst other themes.
They creatively mix sound samples with traditional instruments such as fiddle, banjo, mandolin and guitar. Blues, jazz and even hip-hop influences contribute to their unique sound, with Chris a former Midlands-based music producer.
