Laura Smyth & Ted Kemp
"We take a no-nonsense approach to traditional English folk song, taking our cues from revival singers such as Frankie Armstrong, Peter Bellamy and the Watersons and placing an emphasis on strong vocals, tight harmonies and unfussy arrangements.
With repertoire drawn from and inspired by our homes in the North West and East Anglia, expect to hear a distinctive range of songs sung with passion." Laura & Ted
“Their new EP is one of the most exciting things I’ve heard in a long time. There’s no artifice, no straining for clever effects at all. It’s just damn good songs sung beautifully.” Mike Harding.
“Good straight ahead, proper job folk duo like what they made in the 1970s. No silly folkist mannerisms, and not twee!" fRoots.

Bodmin Folk Club
Bodmin Folk Club
In 1967, a small group of enthusiasts who met weekly to sing in the Masons Arms decided to start a club to attract traditional performers to Cornwall. The first recorded club night of the Bodmin Traditional Folk Club was on 31st May 1968 in an upper room at The Barley Sheaf.
Since then, the club has met almost every single Friday night, welcoming a range of singers, musicians and occasional dancers from Britain and beyond at both guest nights and open houses.
Our new home is at St Petroc's Centre, opposite St Petroc's church. The Centre is not Licensed buy you're welcome to Bring Your Own ( Alcohol & Glasses! ). We've got Tea & Coffee, Soft drinks.
Find us there every Friday except Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and the August Bank Holiday weekend, when we’re at Cornwall Folk Festival.
