Jess and Richard Arrowsmith are singers and musicians (fiddle & melodeon) and well established in the traditional English music scene.
They bring you powerful vocals, subtle accompaniments, lively tunes and a broad range of material that will have you laughing, weeping, tapping your feet and joining in the choruses. Jess’s self-penned songs have been performed and recorded by a range of other artists and are entering the tradition in their own right.
Jess & Richard’s latest project in conjunction with James Fagan & Nancy Kerr as the Melrose Quartet earned them a nomination for “Best Group” at the 2014 BBC Folk Awards.
Other projects past & present include Hekety, Glorystrokes, Crucible and Pecsaetan.
