Simon Barron and Rosalind Brady, funnily enough, are Barron Brady – the special guests at Irvine Folk Club on Wednesday 15th May. Described by Bob Harris of BBC Radio 2 as having a beautiful sound, this will be the first visit of Barron Brady to the Irvine Club.
Having begun performing across the UK five years ago, Barron Brady have received consistently good reviews, with Festival and Club organisers impressed with the duo’s innovative arrangements, well crafted self-penned songs and strong vocal harmonies.
Simon and Rosalind live in Devon and the Irvine Club is included in their Spring Northern Tour – but then from Devon it’s almost always going to be north! They are contemporary songwriters and also interpreters of English folk song. As well as being strong vocalists, Ros plays the harmonium and whistle and Simon excels on fingerstyle guitar. Barron Brady have recorded three albums with Karen Polwart being just one of the people taking to print as a fan of their sound.
The young, enthusiastic and talented Barron Brady are at Irvine Folk Club on 15th May in Vineburgh Community Centre in Quarry Road. The Club starts at 8pm and it’s BYOB.
