Campfire Club: Cath & Phil Tyler | Marisa Jack & Davy
Returning for a fourth summer filling London’s green spaces with music. A concert like no other: unamplified, outdoors, around a fire. Gather together and listen.
Cath & Phil Tyler
Cath & Phil Tyler play Anglo-American folk music using guitar, banjo, voice and fiddle. Cath was a member of the band Cordelia's Dad in the 1990s when she lived in Massachusetts, USA. Phil, from Newcastle upon Tyne has played in various folk, rock and ceilidh bands for many years. Coming together musically through a shared love of traditional narrative song, full voiced sacred harp singing and sparse mountain banjo, they have performed on stages as diverse as the Royal Opera House in London and a dank tower in the old city walls of Newcastle.
"Absolutely great music, it’s raw and uncompromising but I think it gets right to the heart of the story" - Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2
Taking a more minimal approach to their material than some, they have been described as 'one of the most compelling musical partnerships on the scene', their music being 'a highly concentrated and intimate musical experience that penetrates to the very rawest essence of folk tradition'.
Marisa Jack & Davy
Bedford based folk trio MarisaJack&Davy formed in 2015 in order to play at the DIY shows and house concerts they were organising. A floor spot for Stick in the Wheel’s folk night on The Golden Hinde encouraged them to further explore British folk music and they were soon seduced by the music of Shirley Collins, The Young Tradition and Nic Jones.
Marisa Jack & Davy’s unconventional interpretation of the tradition is shaped by the harmonic blend of their three unique voices, acoustic guitar styles and their music backgrounds. Marisa Straccia is an illustrator and plaintive finger picking guitarist, Davy Willis a singer and artist from Tonbridge via L.A. and Jack Sharp, best known as singer for psych rock band Wolf People.
Marisa Jack & Davy run a folk night called Mill Race Folk, a unique and intimate acoustic folk night, which acts as an inspiration and platform for experimenting with traditional songs. Shows are held in various locations around Bedford including an 18th century watermill, a museum, a community boat and a 15th century timber-framed market hall.
The trio are currently recording in Bromham, Bedfordshire and continuing to host the Mill Race Folk podcast and Mill Race Folk events in Bedford.
