Two people’s enough for a trio especially if there’s four of them! And who can argue with logic like that? The Archie Newton Trio are Emma Newton & Claire Motler. Together with producer, Bob Cranham and itinerant Australian fiddle-playing mandolinist, Rachel Donaldson - oh, and the perfectly placed percussive pounding of Big Pete
they have recorded a debut EP, “This Is How Love Grows”, featuring four of their finest compositions. Their unique blend of “real” instruments, quirky lyrics, catchy melodies and clever vocal harmonies combine to bring you a sound that can only be described as Nouveau Acousticana - a completely new musical genre created by four heads being better than three especially if there’s only two of them.
