Les Woodley (double bass and mandolin) and Lynne Ward (accordion and whistles) join forces with John to bring a fuller sound to his moving and thought-provoking songs, which capture the spirit of the times we live in and reflect his life in a tough and gritty East Anglian fishing port that has seen more than its fair share of social change and decline.
With powerful 3-part harmonies, John’s show-stopping bodhran playing and accomplished guitar work, the trio’s performances are authentic and from the heart.
