James was the Radio 2 Young Folk Awards winner in 2009 and since then his singing, guitar & fiddle playing has grown in maturity and skill.
James is joined here by Beth Orrell on vocals and Alex Cumming on accordion in an exciting new collaboration.
Alex Cumming is a multi-instrumentalist with an interest in traditional dance, and has been a caller at many festivals and dance workshops. As a member of the Dyer: Cummings band Alex’s musicanshio and stage presence are well known at Priddy – we feel he’s almost a part of the festival family.
Beth Orrell has been singing regularly with James at festivals and folk clubs during the last year and with her jazz/big band background she brings an original sound to this folk trio.
