The Davenport Family

Two generations steeped in traditional song. Liz and Paul have been stalwarts of the English folk scene for decades, and received the EFDSS Gold Badge Award last year. In addition to performing, Paul is a researcher of traditions from Yorkshire and has written some fantastic songs. Now joined by Gavin, whose musical life has included a solo career as well as stints in the Albion Band and Sheffield quartet Crucible, and Amy, whose upbringing was immersed in the folk clubs of Liverpool, they bring us an excellent repertoire, lush harmonies and genuine family camaraderie.
