The Bromleys are John, Jenny & James (father, daughter & son). Each gifted with a powerful voice, they sing a mixture of traditional and contemporary folk songs in three part harmony, both a capella and with instrumental accompaniment. Together, The Bromleys create a rich blend of voices that is unique to their kin. They have each performed solo and as part of a variety of bands, including Kimber's Men, A Rookery and Jump Jive & Wail and it was only ever a matter of time until they began singing together. It runs through their blood.
Didikai present a broad and diverse range of material with their enthralling new duo featuring the sultry vocal talents of Amy-Rose and the musical finesse of Becky Taylor. They present an amazing variety of instrument combinations including duelling fiddles, uilleann pipes, duet concertina, guitar, piano and whistles (but not all at the same time!). Traditional clog dancing and Sean Nos stepping are also thrown into the mix culminating in a set that is delivered with more than a hint of humour and style.
From this enigmatic and highly original due you can expect anything from self penned songs (see video below) to traditional Gipsy ballads, rousing chorus songs and catchy tune sets. You are most certainly guaranteed not to get bored!
