Witness the coming together of two kindred musical explorers.

Craig Denham on Accordion, Keys, whistles, foot percussion and vocals and multi-instrumentalist Nathan Torvik on whatever he decides to play on the day!

Their virtuosic musical chemistry is tangible and, with a love of improvisation, they’re not afraid to dive into whatever musical rabbit holes might appear on any given gig. With a huge range of styles and influences to draw on from various folk and world musics to blues, reggae, jazz flavours and improvised soundscapes, expect a night of lush musical richness tinged with humour and not taking oneself too seriously.
