Folk – Black*Scarr & Warp and Weft & The Aldyn Duo
BLACK*SCARR are Johnny Black and Emma Scarr, an East London duo formed by two singer songwriters with different styles and influences, but whose co-writing has collided to produce a collection of songs that move audiences to laughter and tears. Black*Scarr have become known for live performances bursting with energy and chemistry. Guitar, fiddle, mandolin, harmonica and classic harmonies document the trials, contradictions, fears and delights of middle-aged life and love. They last appeared at the Maltings, at the 2016 St Albans Folk Festival as a result of winning the 2015 Watford Folk Club song writing competition.
Kim Olyett and Alison Raymond are songwriters and solo artists who sing together as the duo Warp and Weft. Kim’s carefully crafted vocals are underscored by Alison’s rich vocal harmonies and sensitive guitar and piano accompaniments.
The Aldyn Duo is made up of two sisters, Claire and Rebecca Prince. They play accordion and viola and write tunes themselves as well as playing traditional tunes from Europe and the UK.
