    The nation's foremost all male folk supergroup sound like no-one else on earth! Their most recent album, ‘Head of Steam’, heralds another chapter in the life of a band that have thrilled the live music scene in various incarnations since the early 80s. English folk's most celebrated performer, Martin Carthy, and former Steeleye Span and Albion Country band accordionist John Kirkpatrick, naturally lock into one another's playing with an ease and precision that can only come from performing together for over thirty years. Sharing the vocals, and sometimes singing together in unison on their 30th anniversary tour, Martin and John are joined by Roger Williams, tripping effortlessly through the fastest of tunes on the bass trombone and creating soft melodies on the euphonium, Martin Binsford, adding sweetness or punch on his mouth-organ, and Paul Archibald, whose classical trumpet training and love of folk music have added another dimension to the band's much loved sound.
