Nancy Kerr and James Fagan: ‘Dance to Your Daddy’

As I said on Facebook yesterday, James Fagan and Nancy Kerr are one of the most consistently enjoyable duos in traditional folk music today. I regard Nancy as one of the finest folk fiddlers in the world, and their voices complement each other perfectly. The instrument James is playing is actually a guitar-bodied bouzouki (if you look closely you will see that it doesn’t have six strings, like a guitar, but eight strings arranged in four courses).

Here are James and Nancy at the 2013 Bath Folk Festival playing their version of the traditional folk song ‘Dance to Your Daddy’.

James and Nancy’ website is currently under construction but you can follow them on Facebook here. Their latest CD is Twice Reflected Sun.
