Laura Smyth & Ted Kemp / Bio

Since moving to London and winning Islington Folk Club’s Trad2Mad competition in late 2011, Laura Smyth has quickly established herself as an accomplished singer on the London folk music scene. She and multi-instrumentalist Ted Kemp perform songs and tunes from the English tradition, including many from Laura’s native Manchester and surrounding area, with arrangements featuring English Concertina, 5-string Banjo, Melodeon, Cello, and Guitar.

Laura and Ted interpret and deliver their music with a reverence for the English tadition, taking influence from both collected and revival performers while achieving a style that is very much their own.
