Ripon Wilfrid’s Folk Club

Duncan McFarlane & Anne Brivonese

This duo offers an entertaining blend of Progressive, Contemporary, Self-Penned and Traditional Folk Song, played on guitar and fiddle and sung with style, panache and lashings of good humour! For almost twenty years now they have graced many a Festival Main Stage from Shrewsbury to Sidmouth, from Otley to Ely, from Spain’s Costa del Folk, to Denmark!

Duncan has an obvious feel for the tradition and a deep-rooted belief that it has a place in the current folk scene, aspects which he puts across with lively showmanship. His own songs show a canny grasp of, and response to, the tradition, while his intrinsic seriousness of intent and approach is often laced with a healthy irreverence that happens to be hugely entertaining! To the already full sound of Duncan’s own tremendous guitar playing, Anne Brivonese contributes excellent, sympathetic yet punchy fiddle; Supremely exciting playing without needing to act the show-off, her violin rolls out a carpet of sound over which the action ceaselessly capers. Standing serene at the centre of proceedings, adding elegant and exciting fiddle, Anne also gets a chance to show off her voice and a great voice it is too, contributing lovely supporting harmony vocals’ – The Living Tradition
