Simon Mayor & Hilary James

Gloriously funny, inclusive and diverse

Simon is a mandolin virtuoso – so good, he wrote the book on how to play; Hilary is a smooth-as-silk guitarist and fine player of the magnificent mandobass – recognisably mandolin-shaped, but huge. They tackle genres from folk and blues to pop, jazz and even classical. Their shows are gloriously funny, inclusive and diverse – one minute an evocative Irish ballad, the next a comic children’s song and the next something by Handel.
