David Mitchell and Graham Vincent are a folk duo from Dorset and Somerset who bring traditional and contemporary styles on Fiddle and Guitar to folk tunes and songs from around the British Isles, as well as original material drawing on the folk traditions, producing their own varied arrangements and great foot-tapping folk music.
They first met playing in a ceilidh band, based in the South West of England, and found out that coincidentally they had both trained as Luthiers (instrument makers) (David plays a guitar he has made, and Graham now makes violins). So, with shared musical tastes and wanting to make more music, they started playing a few gigs as a duo during 2012. They have enjoyed playing ever since and now perform around 100 concerts a year.
Mitchell and Vincent have performed at a whole variety of festivals, events and concerts around the UK and abroad as well as in their native West Country, including established popular events such as Glastonbury Festival, Beverley Folk Festival, Broadstairs Folk Week, Bath Folk and International Festivals, Oxford Folk Weekend and Wimborne Minster Folk Festival. They have also supported renowned musicians such as Tim Edey (a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award Winner), Archie Fisher MBE, Jackie Oates and Kate Rusby as well as Ralph McTell and Wizz Jones.
