Ben Paley & Tab Hunter

BEN (described by Folk Roots as "just about the best folk-fiddler of his generation") has been playing the fiddle music of the USA, Sweden and Ireland since he was six years old. He has toured widely with his father Tom (founder-member of the seminal New Lost City Ramblers) and recorded with Bing LyleMandragoraThe Saw DoctorsMurray Lachlan Young and The New Deal String Band. His collection of Swedish fiddle tunes (Swedish Fiddle Music, an Anthologypublished by Dragonfly Music) has become the standard work on the subject in this country.  TAB has gained his breadth of experience as a guitarist (flat-picker and accompanist), songwriter and recorded jews' harpist as a soloist and in duos and bands in the tradition, from Irish music to death-blue-metal-grass, through klezmer, jazz, Old Time and Scandinavian folk music. His playing has taken him to perform all over Europe, including England's prestigious Edale and North Walesbluegrass festivals.

Two thoroughly nice chaps playing lovely music.
