This versatile Southwell-based duo Jill and Bernard Blackwell have performed at
major folk festivals, on radio and on four much-admired recordings, bringing their unique style to traditional ballads and tunes, sacred harp music and 1930s swing, with accompaniment on Northumbrian smallpipes, flute, guitar, button accordion and concertina. Jill is also an accomplished step dancer who demonstrates percussive dance from around the British Isles.
