Somerset Duo With An Unaccountably Big Sound ...
Combining traditional music’s instrumental union of fiddle and guitar with technical mastery, ‘indecently talented’ (Mike Harding) and earned a nomination for the 2018 BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award. The Drystones are a young lively folk duo from Priddy in Somerset playing violin, guitar and whistle, who have made a big splash since they formed in July 11.
They have played festivals all over the West Country (including Larmer Tree, Sidmouth, Broadstairs, Purbeck and Folk East), and at their 2013 Glastonbury Festival performance they were highlighted by Steve Lamacq on Radio 2 as his "recommendation of the day".
According to Living Tradition “to describe their instrumental style as spirited and animated would be akin to asserting that Bellowhead can be quite an energetic band”!
