NOTES FOR PROGRAMMES & ADVERTISING

1. Our grown up duo (short version):

Jess and Richard Arrowsmith bring you powerful vocals, subtle accompaniments, lively tunes and a broad range of predominantly traditional English material that will have you laughing, weeping, tapping your feet and joining in the choruses.

2. Our grown up duo (long version):

Jess and Richard Arrowsmith are singers and musicians (fiddle & melodeon) and well established in the traditional English music scene. They bring you powerful vocals, subtle accompaniments, lively tunes and a broad range of material that will have you laughing, weeping, tapping your feet and joining in the choruses. Jess’s self-penned songs have been performed and recorded by a range of other artists and are entering the tradition in their own right. Jess & Richard’s latest project in conjunction with James Fagan & Nancy Kerr as the Melrose Quartet earned them a nomination for “Best Group” at the 2014 BBC Folk Awards. Other projects past & present include Hekety, Glorystrokes, Crucible and Pecsaetan.

3. Our kids’ show:

Off We Go! is the captivating children’s music show from traditional English musicians Jess and Richard Arrowsmith (Melrose Quartet, Hekety, Crucible). Bring your family along for some nursery songs and rhymes, with plenty of joining in, actions and animal noises. Suitable for babies, toddlers, and big kids of all ages (even grown up ones!)
