Chris Sherburn & Denny Bartley, with Emily Sanders

Surprises and laughter

Denny’s evocative singing does not simply call up images of the west of Ireland, it transports you there. Add in Chris’s warmly witty banter and concertina playing and Emily’s vocals and fiddle playing and the package is complete. This is a trio steeped in traditional folk music. Chris grew up in a Yorkshire home visited often by passing musicians, while Denny, born in County Limerick, was exposed to the music of the region from an early age, and Emily has been part of the folk scene for 20 years or more. Expect jigs, reels, airs and songs with a hypnotic vocal quality. Plus plenty of surprises and laughter.
