Vicki and Jonny are two of the most versatile musicians of the folk circuit today, a on stage – and now online, the duo are recognised for the high quality of their polished concerts; not only by their charismatic singing and playing but also by their involving, winning presence and easy rapport, their polished delivery that genuinely respects their listeners, and their lively, informed backstories. The whole package.

 

Their performances showcase new interpretations of old songs alongside original self-penned tunes and new contemporary songs that are entirely at home in the tradition.

They have developed a sound that is both familiar and fresh. Strong believers in letting the music tradition live and breathe through sensitive interpretation, Vicki and Jonny allow the melody to sing without any constraints. Vicki Swan & Jonny Dyer have developed an enviable reputation for their ability to reimagine folk- and folk-dance music; creating sounds that are simultaneously new and progressive, and yet entirely sympathetic to the tradition.  They have become deeply involved in folk dance over the last ten years; contra, ceilidh and ’social dance’ both as the duo and as Purcell’s Polyphonic Party.  They often insert performance elements into their dance music.  You are very likely to find yourself dancing to a song – and we dare you not to sing the chorus as you go.
