We are based in East Suffolk and provide relatively inexpensive, light-hearted concerts, folk club spots or after dinner entertainment. Our material is drawn from East Anglian local traditional songs and tunes, music hall and a few more recent gems. The emphasis is on entertainment and audience participation. We prefer to play acoustically and get up ‘close and personal’ with our audiences.
