Arts that matter in places that matter

Cosgrave & Banks – Folk Music

Saturday 24th March 2018

Mike Cosgrave and Steve Banks have pooled their considerable musical talents and experience to form an exciting folk/acoustic duo. Mike has worked with artists as diverse as the late “Celtic Soul” singer Jackie Leven and current star of the English scene Jackie Oates, singer-songwriters Jenny Crook and Reg Meuross, and renowned late 90s Celtic/ World music crossover band Sin é. Steve started out as a violinist with the likes of the London Symphony Orchestra, but then moved to folk with the Carnival Band, including their ever-popular Christmas tours with folk legend Maddy Prior. He went on to form his own band, Blue Jewel, which had a strong Devon following.

Both are gifted multi-instrumentalists and writers. Their programme is a smorgasbord of beautiful music, traditional and contemporary, from Britain and Europe, and includes songs that capture episodes in the amazing history of South Devon. Their debut CD, Warp & Weft, was released to critical acclaim in 2016.

“Two terrifically talented musicians bringing unexpected gems for our delight. Soulful and fun.” Maddy Prior
