Description

Simon Mayor & Hilary James

"Uplifting...magic...made me laugh a lot" Sean Rafferty, BBC Radio 3


A RIOT OF MUSIC AND HUMOUR "Virtuoso mandolin, elegant vocals, guitar and fiddle wizardry, and a stage show that ranges from witty to hilarious. Expect anything from a Vivaldi concerto, trad folk, jazz standards, Celtic, ragtime, blues and, of course, that song about the parrot!" - Ents24
