Jimmy and Sid are just great and we love them! We've travelled to see them many times so we're delighted to welcome them to the Cowshed for what will be a great night of music and storytelling.


‘Making common cause between antique songs and present circumstances is one of the grails of modern folk, one this young duo pull off impressively...Rousing stuff.’

161 ‘Exhilaratingly diverse and full of impeccably crafted and beautifully realised songs.’
Folk Radio UK.

Their music is both hard-hitting and uplifting with songs reflecting on the modern world sitting alongside unearthed gems from the British and Irish folk tradition, delivered with powerful harmony singing and sensitive musical arrangements. Their storytelling gets to the heart of life in Britain today. with a common thread of political struggle, resistance, and justice (as well as the occasional love song).
