Gentile & Wood - CANCELLED
Helen Gentile (Threepenny Bit, Monkey See Monkey Do) and Lewis Wood (Granny’s Attic, Mick Ryan’s ‘Here at the Fair’) are an exciting duo, playing instrumental folk music on Clarinet, Fiddle and Guitar.
The duo combines the talent of two musicians who are firmly embedded into the folk music community in England. Both are fine instrumentalists and between them, their festival credits include Cambridge, Sidmouth, Shrewsbury, Towersey, Chippenham, Purbeck, Oxford, Swanage, Warwick, Bromyard, Broadstairs, Chester, Whitby and many more.
In this configuration, Helen and Lewis draw together their musical influences to perform original and dynamic arrangements of folk dance tunes, as well as writing new traditionally inspired music, with a character and feeling all of its own.
Mindful of the context of these tunes, from Europe and beyond, Helen and Lewis are sensitive in their performances, whilst also boldly pushing the boundaries of their musicianship, to keep the audience on the edge of their seats.
