". . . Amazing. . as the audience left there was only stunned silent admiration." EVENT MAGAZINE

Maggie Boyle - “...a voice the angels would kill for…" ROCK'N'REEL

"Quite simply Duck Baker is the premier American fingerstyle guitarist" - Sing Out

“Lovely intonation, supple wrist and fluid bowing, pulsing, lilting rhythm and a superb ear for melody and counter-melody” Jim Younger

A fabulous evening of music, songs and banter. The inspired combination of 3 great performers, all sought after in their own right, who have come together for a musical celebration of the highest calibre. Maggie Boyle (voice/flute) has sung/played with The Chieftains, Incantation, Bert Jansch, Steve Tilston, John Renbourn’s Ship of Fools, & many, many more). Her vocals adorn the Hollywood Blockbusters Patriot Games & Legends of the Fall. From Richmond, Virginia, Duck Baker (guitar) is one of the most highly regarded fingerstyle guitarists of his generation. Born in London, Ben Paley (fiddle) was surrounded by traditional music from the outset: his father (Tom Paley, one of the great figures of the American folk revival), mother (singer Claudia Gould) and step-father (Ron Gould, writer on jazz, country and folk music) were all enormous influences. Ben has been playing the fiddle music of the USA, Sweden and Ireland since he was six years old.
