ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Vicki & Jonny effortlessly blend traditional material with contemporary performance styles whilst equally creating original self penned tunes and songs that are entirely at home in the tradition. Out of this combination they have developed a sound that is both familiar and fresh. Strong believers in letting the music tradition live and breathe through sensitive interpretation, Vicki and Jonny allow the melody to sing without any constraints.

Suitable for all ages, their evenings are packed with toe tapping tunes and songs of love, death, trains and dressing up (not always at the same time) all presented with sparkling gentle humour, lots of smiles and skillful musicianship.

Vicki is the UK’s leading expert in the Swedish nyckelharpa and a second-generation piper. A Royal College of Music postgraduate, she is now bringing the instrument to a wider audience in the UK with her nyckelharpa UK project. She is also a member of the European Nyckelharpa Orchestra performing this year in Italy. As a fluent Swedish speaker and brought up surrounded by Swedish traditions, Vicki is perfectly placed to perform Swedish music. In addition to the nyckelharpa, she also plays the little known Swedish bagpipes.

Jonny Dyer is a performer, arranger and composter whose outstanding technical ability, coupled with a wide-ranging musical taste has made him a forceful musical innovator. He has become critically renowned for his contemporary interpretations of traditional song. He also plays bouzouki, accordion and kohorn. He is probably the UK’s leading exponent of this ancient Viking instrument.

Composer and competition-winning guitar player; Jonny’s outstanding technical ability, coupled with a wide-ranging musical taste has made him a tireless and forceful musical innovator. Jonny has been singing choral music and playing soul, jazz and folk for as long as he can remember.
