Damien Barber & Mike Wilson

As two of the finest exponents of traditional song in the U.K, it is difficult to accept that these relatively young men, have a combined 40+ years experience of performing at folk venues. Damien is a stylish and distinctive singer, either unaccompanied or using guitar or concertina. Though he has lived for a long time in West Yorkshire, he retains a strong East Anglian identity.

Mike is the youngest member of the Wilson Family, the powerful Teesside singing siblings who have raised the rafters at many a festival or folk club event. His musical heritage is emphatically that of the North East; rural and industrial folk song both traditional and modern.
