Dovetail Trio 8.30 pm Wednesday 18 April 2018 at Carrington Folk Club

Our next guests are THE DOVETAIL TRIO who have been described as “presenting England’s traditional songs with a bold and fresh approach” since first appearing as a trio in 2014. They came together when Matt Quinn from Brighton a melodeon and concertina player met Rosie Hood a fiddler and singer with a particular interest in songs from her native Wiltshire.
They wanted a skilled guitarist to complement the mix so asked Jamie Roberts, who had a good grounding with Kerfuffle and was playing with Katriona Gilmore, to join them. Jamie can flat pick or play in bluegrass mode as well, so whilst Rosie and Matt sing traditional material from several sources, they have a much wider range as we saw when they visited the club in 2015. They have recently been busy with separate projects and compositions and only tour together for a short time each year, so we’re pleased they’ll be back on 18th April.
