This duo first came to The Bradford Arms Folk Club to give us a Showcase Spot.  The audience were so appreciative that we received numerous requests to book them for a full guest night. 

Manchester-based Michelle sings traditional and contemporary British/American songs as well as playing guitar, banjo and concertina. With a striking and distinctive voice, she performs with passion and sensitivity.

Her accompanist Bonz, a talented multi-instrumentalist, plays dobro, banjo and harmonica, and provides harmony vocals for Michelle. He has been performing in folk clubs and at festivals and proudly states that he’s been playing concerts since before Michelle was born.

Sadie and Jay live in Australia and last toured the UK in 2016, when they appeared at our club as support for Harvey Andrews.  We were all hugely impressed by their refreshing style and look forward to listening to them for a full guest night.

Sadie & Jay sing captivating songs accompanied by intricate finger style guitar and double bass. 
Their contemporary and original folk music styles have leanings to the alternative with a tinge of blues and roots.  Blending vocals of rare calibre with an evocative back-drop of traditional folk instruments this duo perform intimate, expressive and resonant music.
