Comprising three of Britain's finest musicians and interpreters of songs and tunes, each member of this trio is an acknowledged virtuoso in their own right.

Nancy Kerr, BBC Radio 2 Folk Singer of the Year 2015 has been a major part of the acoustic music scene since she was a teenager and has always been a distinctive and impressive talent, turning heads everywhere she's played or sung. She has previously been nominated for the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Original Song, acknowledging her superb song-writing skills as well as being a multi-instrumentalist and singer of rare and astonishing talent.

BBC Radio 2 Musician of the Year 2016, Andy Cutting is an extraordinary talent. A master of the diatonic accordion and most other squeezeboxes, he is a superbly sensitive accompanist, a writer of beautiful and thrilling tunes, a highly in-demand band member and a sublime solo performer.

Martin Simpson is a multi-award winning musician, singer and songwriter who has worked with a vast array of well known musicians as being a world-renowned performer in his own right. He has spent the last 20 years in the USA absorbing a range of music and since moving back to the UK he has gone from strength to strength.

The trio's debut album Murmurs was released on Topic Records on 8 June 2015.
