Jess and Richard Arrowsmith are singers and musicians (fiddle & melodeon) and well established in the traditional English music scene. They bring you powerful vocals, subtle accompaniments, lively tunes and a broad range of material that will have you laughing, weeping, tapping your feet and joining in the choruses.
Jess’s self-penned songs have been performed and recorded by a range of other artists and are entering the tradition in their own right. Jess & Richard’s latest project in conjunction with James Fagan & Nancy Kerr as the Melrose Quartet has earned them a nomination for “Best Group” at the 2014 BBC Folk Awards.
Other projects include Hekety, Glorystrokes, Crucible and Pecsaetan.
