The Old Sod Society is delighted to welcome back to Ottawa two of our favourite exponents of English music and song, Doug Eunson and Sarah Matthews: Great musicianship, two fine voices, wonderful arrangements, and a very engaging stage presence.
This talented Derbyshire-based pair have been playing English Acoustic Folk Music together since 1995.
They both sing – in superb harmony – with melodeon and fiddle / viola instrumentation.
They choose their material with care and craft their arrangements with style and intuitive elegance, playing English and European dance music and drawing on some of the finest English folk song repertoire.
“…dynamic vocals, great harmonies, warm stage presence and first rate instrumentals” Warren Robinson, Goderich Celtic Roots Festival
“An eloquent expression of the interactive nature of what ‘our’ music can still be” Clive Pownceby, Bothy Folksong Club, Southport, UK
“Eunson and Matthews are very, very good – it’s not just their musicianship that grabs you, but the way they carry and delight in the tradition” Sol Loreto-Miller, The Bright Young Folk Review
