The Watergrain Band

The Watergrain Band is a touring four piece comprising Ben Paley, Pip Ives and Geoff Sandiford together with songwriter Martin Young “We are not about protest songs”, says Martin, “others are doing that, there are some political songs and some traditional but we don’t do songs to be populist or to make a cheap point. In the modern world of the internet we are more open to the views of others than ever, these songs are intended to reflect the perceptions of the world and the attitudes of the day. They are about chronicling a moment in time.” Pip Ives and Ben Paley on accordion and fiddle add skillful touches of intricate and sensitive playing, giving colour and depth to the arrangements.
