This talented pair have been playing English Acoustic Folk Music together since 1995.  They both sing – in superb harmony – with Melodeon and Fiddle / Viola instrumentation.

They choose their material with care and craft their arrangements with style and intuitive elegance, playing English and European dance music and drawing on some of the finest English folk song repertoire.

Doug and Sarah have delighted folk clubs and festival audiences alike with knowledge of their material and relaxed humourous delivery.

Tony Deane’s “Following the Old Oss”, performed by Doug and Sarah at the rather prestigeous Eton College School Hall in May 2009:

“This derbyshire based duo, rooted in the english tradition, have developed into exciting performers of both traditional and contemporary music. With creative arrangements, their musicianship is at once in evidence and as if that wasn’t enough they are both excellent singers who employ imaginative harmonies to great effect. A great night out!”

“an eloquent expression of the interactive nature of what ‘our’ music can still be”

Clive Pownceby, Bothy Folksong Club, Southport   March 2008

“Sarah Matthews and Doug Eunson are a duo that performs like a much larger group with dynamic vocals, great harmonies, warm stage presence and first rate instrumentals.  They are also super teachers and a firm hit with students and audiences alike.”
