Nick Wyke & Becki Driscoll
Popular local folk musicians Nick Wyke & Becki Driscoll return with their trio featuring double-bass player James Budden. Nick and Becki are stunning ﬁddle players, singers and composers with an innovative take on English folk. Their combined skills and musicianship forge a joyful collision of traditional music and contemporary bowed strings. Their unique sound is a blend of bewitching melodies, driving ﬁddle chords and powerful vocals, interspersed with anecdotes of adventures and stories from the road. Their latest project “The Songs of Edward Capern” features landscape and life-inspired poetry from a renowned Victorian poet set to the duo’s own compositions, drawing on and evoking the folk melodies of 19th Century Devon from the soaring highs of the lark to the deep sadness of the weeping robin.
