Next up on our Virtual Stage, please welcome comer-inners and up and coming local legends Laura and Ted to our virtual stage on Wednesday 27th May.
Laura Smyth & Ted Kemp take a no-nonsense approach to traditional English folk song, taking cues from revival singers such as Frankie Armstrong, Peter Bellamy and the Watersons and placing an emphasis on strong vocals, tight harmonies and unfussy arrangements.
With repertoire drawn from and inspired by their homes in the North West and East Anglia, expect to hear a distinctive range of songs sung with passion.
“Good straight ahead, proper job folk duo like what they made in the 1970s – sound and look like an escapee from Trailer. No silly folkist mannerisms, and not twee… worth investigating.” Ian Anderson
