The celebrated 11-piece collective combines the colossal talents of some of Britain's top fiddlers in a flourish of fretwork – Fairport Convention's Chris Leslie, Steeleye Span's brilliant bowman Peter Knight, Bully Wee Band's Ian Cutler and ex Battlefield Band's Brian McNeill joining forces with Garry Blakeley (Band of Two) and Tom Leary (John B Spencer Trio/Albion Morris). The sizzling "backing band" is led by band founder Hugh Crabtree on accordion and iconic folk-rock drummer Dave Mattacks, who has played with Fairport, Steeleye and Richard Thompson as well as the likes of Paul McCartney, Elton John and Chris Rea. Now living in the USA, the master drummer has played on a staggering number of diverse recordings. Also in the engine room are John Underwood and Martin Vincent on acoustic and electric guitars and Dave Harding on bass – virtuosos all.
