Looking like they might be sidekicks of The Clash on the cover of the April 2003 edition of fRoots magazine, with an extensive interview inside, John Spiers (melodeon) and Jon Boden (fiddle) are the new wave face of British folk music. Their first album for Fellside, THROUGH & THROUGH, grabbed reviews such as "Daringly confronts the traditional way of doing things", "A much needed breath of fresh air in the world of traditional music", "This is the real thing, English folk music with heat and soul". Now they're at it again, pumping new life, a renewed ebullience, into a long tradition. This is folk with attitude by an award-winning duo on the way up.
