Church Street,


One of the finest duos to have emerged onto the British folk and acoustic scene in recent years. Their combination of outstanding vocal work, sensitive instrumentation, and a powerful social conscience has brought them widespread critical acclaim.

"To be a great folk singer, you have to be a great storyteller, as Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith are clearly aware. The duo are both fine singers and multi-instrumentalists." (The Guardian)

The songs themselves are always given centre stage but they are brought to life with stunning musical arrangements and vocals. There is an integrity that shines through their performances and a common thread of political struggle, resistance, and justice.



Joshua Smith and Ed Nunn
Josh has played for us a number of times solo – he is a popular performer on the local folk scene who plays a range of traditional, contemporary and self-penned songs and he plays bazouki, mandolin, and melodeon. He is joined now by Ed Nunn , who we have also seen here as the duo Nunn and Dunn.
