Caroline plays the gut-strung Celtic harp and the whistle, John plays guitar, bouzouki, ukulele, whistles, Scottish Lowland and Irish pipes, smallpipes and Galician bagpipes.  Both are very fine singers in the Northumbrian and Scottish Folk traditions. 

JACK BURNESS - Jack has been writing songs, playing in bands and performing solo since the 1970’s. A great admirer of Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison and Tom Waits amongst others, he has developed his own style of writing and seeks to portray his own emotions, life and times in his songs, without becoming maudlin or sentimental. 

MIKE ORCHARD - Mike Orchard lives locally and returned to the local folk scene after many years absence, he can be seen & heard singing & playing his contemporary style of folk in folk clubs, radio folk programmes, and festivals in and around the North East.
