Mike Cosgrave (Sin é, Jackie Leven, Jackie Oates) and Steve Banks (Maddy Prior & the Carnival Band, Blue Jewel) have pooled their considerable musical talents and experience to form an exciting folk duo, performing a smörgåsbord of beautiful music, traditional and contemporary, from Britain, Europe (mainly France, Scandinavia and Eastern Europe), and beyond. They have recently completed a very successful tour of 15 gigs with Villages In Action, the Devon rural touring scheme. Word of their superb musicianship and entertaining programme is spreading fast.
Their first CD, “Warp & Weft” has had great reviews. “Two terrifically talented musicians bringing unexpected gems for our delight. Soulful and fun.” — Maddy Prior. “Superb playing and singing, all with a great sense of style and fun ! ”— Tom McConville. “Cosgrave and Banks are masters of their instruments, their tunes and songs taken from a variety of sources and exquisitely arranged and performed – a real delight for the listener. Highly recommended.” – Pete Cooper. “Their debut is very good indeed. They take traditional tunes, songs and motifs and weave them into exhilarating new compositions.” — fRoots. “A truly captivating CD that touches the very depth of being as only music can.” — The Living Tradition. “A delightfully eclectic album. Two incredible musicians, weaving threads of music together to create material that is greater than the sum of its parts.” — FATEA . “A fine evening’s entertainment; top quality musicianship across a varied and highly entertaining programme.” — Folk On The Moor folk club.
