ESSEX-based folk duo, Vicki Swan and Jonny Dyer, effortlessly blend traditional material with contemporary sounds.

The pair will be performing at The Old Sorting Office in Wiveliscombe on June 7.

Their performances showcase new interpretations of old songs alongside original self-penned tunes and new contemporary songs that are entirely at home in the tradition.

They have developed a sound that is both familiar and fresh.

Strong believers in letting the music tradition live and breathe through sensitive interpretation, Vicki and Jonny allow the melody to sing without any constraints.
