Thom Ashworth & Ellie Wilson

Superb tenor voice and exquisite fiddle playing

Thom made such an impression when he played as support for the sold-out Heidi Talbot concert last summer that he had to be offered an evening of his own. He plays stripped back versions of English traditional music on acoustic bass and has already made a name for himself with his inventive arrangements of traditional songs. Ellie, a key member of Stick in the Wheel folk group, is a violinist and composer who plays with an “exquisite beauty”, says Mojo magazine. Together, she and Thom create a sound that is innovative, atmospheric and subtle.
