Mixing vivid storytelling with eclectic sounds, singer-cellist Bonnie Schwarz and Shrewsbury man Pete Shaw on accordion, draw on diverse musical tastes and weave them into an action-packed narrative of folky goodness. After touring New Zealand, they’ve returned to spread their joyous music throughout the UK. 

Turning heads across the globe, their unique sound and brand of brisk instrumental virtuosity, once reviewed as a duo with the sound of a five piece, is far larger and more diverse than you might expect. Their creative arrangements and lyrics produce folk music with something for everyone.
