Danny Pedler & Greg Russell *

20th January 2020

Singer and guitarist, Greg Russell makes a welcome return with a new Arts Council funded project along with Essex born hurdy-gurdy player and accordionist, Danny Pedler.

Together they bring you the Field & Dyke project; a project combining traditional music with the sounds of industry. Grown out of an oral history research project conducted by Danny, the music incorporates samples of dialogue from Field & Dyke Interviewees as well as being based around factory machine rhythms.

These innovative music-making techniques create songs that explore folk music as a vehicle to communicate the feeling behind the social and cultural themes present in 21st century England.


The Larks
The Larks, Liz Miller and Chris Wilbraham, have been singing and playing together in pubs, folk clubs and festivals since meeting at a musical night in The Bear Inn, Beyton in 2007. They continue to host it quarterly.

They can be found playing at Folk clubs, bars, pubs, restaurants and Folk festivals, where they entertain with their own quirky take on a diverse range of songs from the likes of Gillian Welch, Radiohead, Joni Mitchell, The Smiths, Johnny Cash and The Cure.

They add their own material to the mix, using guitars, mandolin, harmonies and sometimes rapping to put the songs across.
