Duo at the Bothy ~ Sarah Horn & James Cudworth

Sarah and James are young performers whose music is attracting wide attention, even though they are still in their teens. Although they only got together in June 2009 they have already performed at many festivals and numerous local clubs. They play their own mix of traditional and contemporary folk, along with acoustic music from other genres. Sarah plays violin and sings, while James sings and plays guitar, clarinet, harmonica, bass, drums, ukelele, stomp box, mandolin, saxophone and penny whistle. Here is a YouTube of them playing:

They are on at the Bothy this Sunday 4th July, replacing Nancy Kerr and James Fagan who had to cancel because Nancy is unwell. Sarah and James have stepped in at very short notice.

The Bothy is at the Park Golf Club, Park Road West, Southport, PR9 0JS, which serves Thwaites real ale. It all begins at 8.00 pm.

    These two, whose collective age is 35 years(!)represent the very best in the up-and-coming, young thruster approach that is revitaling Folk music and shaking us old lags up a bit!
    Sarah was fiddle player in a band called Jiggawatt who came along to do a support slot at the Bothy some 2 years back. They're deserving of a break and whilst they don't yet have the profile of the duo they're replacing, this would be a chance to check them out before Ashley Hutchings hears of them and they end up in Rainbow Chasers!!!!

  2. Wow, what a night!
    Thanks Clive for giving them this showcase. Superb fiddle with a lovely voice, plusmulti-instrumental vigour.
    Watch out for them.

  3. I agree entirely, Ian. I think they'll be going places.
