Folk – Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne + Jenny McNaught, Andrew McClellon & Jem Kid
Award winning singer and squeezebox player Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne is best known for his work with BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award nominees Granny’s Attic, with whom he performed in the 2018 St Albans Folk Festival concert. A singer and instrumentalist with a love of English music, Cohen is a fine player of both the melodeon and anglo concertina and a performer of traditional English folk songs and tunes along with some original material. His rich voice soars through a range of historical ballads, industrial songs and shanties, with a particular penchant for material from the West Midlands, where he has lived for much of his life.
Jenny McNaught and Andy McClellon often appear at local events, and sing regularly at the Redbourn Folk Club where Jenny is one of the organisers. Jenny was well known for her duo, Run of the Mill, with Alan Halse, who recently retired to Somerset. Andy also performs with his brother Steve, as Mc2.
Raised in the hills of South England, Jem Kid was always surrounded by the sounds of folk and classical radio. Poetic and stirring like the songs of childhood and church, he has turned heads from New York (The Local) to London (The Cabbage Patch), Paris (L’étage) to Berlin, where he now lives and plays.
