The Polyphon Chronicles : Luke Daniels, Nancy Kerr
Celtic button accordion virtuoso and acclaimed composer in the traditional style. The BBC Award-winning composer has designed and built the ‘Electrophon’. It combines Victorian clockwork engineering on disc-playing polyphon music boxes with digital audio to perform live music as “continuous versus quantum sound” via 20” steel discs that have been specially made for his live shows. Expect to hear both beautifully crafted songs and intriguing instrumental music.

Already a respected interpreter of traditional material, Nancy has emerged as a writer of rare style with a cornucopia of contemporary narratives about love and conflict, motherhood, migration, hardship and jubilation, and the tensions between rural and urban life.
One of the most celebrated folk musicians of her generation, her BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards include the coveted 2015 Folk Singer of the Year, the 2000 Horizon Award and Best Duo in both 2011 and 2013 with husband James Fagan. Nancy also appears in the trio Simpson, Cutting and Kerr.
