Geoff Lakeman + Rob Murch
The “Titan of Twang” and the “Concertina Crooner” team up in a dynamic new duo.
Geoff Lakeman, patriarch of a folk dynasty, as dad of Seth, Sean and Sam and father-in-law of Cara Dillon and Kathryn Roberts, teases English and Irish folk, Americana and jazz songs out of his vintage duet concertina.
Rob Murch brings the “wow factor” to the banjo, with his unique, punchy fingerstyle playing.
Both live on Dartmoor, so it was inevitable they’d gang-up musically.
Expect self-written and West Country songs, rattling folk tunes and foot-stomping ragtime and cakewalk riffs.
Rob’s percussive finger-ballet up and down the fret board of his 100-year-old instrument is mesmerising. He’s revered throughout the UK for his long-time work with the renowned Dartmoor Pixie Band and The Watch trio.
After 50 years as a journalist, music-loving Geoff recorded his debut CD After All These Years at the age of 69, which garnered four and five-star reviews and national radio airplay.
He’s acclaimed for his “masterful” playing of the rare Crane duet concertina and his “rich, melodic voice.”
The duo’s relaxed, yet sparkling stage presence together is bubbling with a feel-good factor.
