Geoff Lakeman And Rob Murch

THE “  Titan of Twang “ and the “ Concertina Crooner”  team up in a dynamic new duo.

GEOFF LAKEMAN, patriarch of a folk dynasty – as dad of Seth,Sean and Sam and father-in-law of Cara Dillon and Kathryn Roberts – teases English and Irish folk, Americana and jazz songs out of his  vintage duet concertina.

ROB MURCH brings the “ wow factor” to the banjo, with his unique,punchy fingerstyle  playing.

Both live on Dartmoor, so it was inevitable they’d gang-up musically. Expect self-written  and West Country songs, rattling folk tunes  and foot-stomping ragtime and cakewalk  riffs.

Rob’s percussive finger-ballet up and down the fret board of his 100 year-old instrument is mesmerising.He’s revered throughout the UK for  his long-time work with the renowned Dartmoor Pixie Band and The Watch trio.

After 50 years as a journalist  music-loving Geoff recorded his  debut CD ,”After All These Years” at the age of  69, which garnered four and five-star reviews and national radio airplay.He’s acclaimed for his “ masterful” playing of the rare Crane duet concertina and his “ rich, melodic voice.”

The duo’s relaxed yet sparkling stage presence together  is bubbling with the “feel -good” factor.

This newly formed duo make a dynamic new unique sound which we are very much looking forward to hearing in Ibiza.
