After a quiet 2018, Carperby Concerts will be playing host to a rare duo performance at Carperby Village Institute on Saturday, February 2 for their first concert of 2019.
Kevin Dempsey and Joe Broughton are two virtuosi of guitar and fiddle who like to do their own thing occasionally, when they’re not earning their crusts in big bands, jazz-rock, pop and soul gigs and the likes of Whippersnapper and the Albion Band.
Joe has been playing since he was in the pram and has a PhD in circus skills and mad banter.
Kevin has been around a bit longer and has played a few more notes.
Musically they’re tighter than two coats of paint.
They have recorded four albums and toured extensively in over 20 countries round the world. Combining emotive songs, unrivalled instrumental capability and a spectacular high energy show, they never fail to create a spellbinding atmosphere.
The list of musicians they have played with is impressive;Whippersnapper, Mary Black, Joss Stone, Dando Shaft, The Urban Folk Quartet, Fairport Convention, The Albion Band, Dave Swarbrick, Percy Sledge, Bellowhead.. but it can’t prepare you for this unique partnership.
To pigeon hole their style of music would be to do them a disservice.
They draw on Folk music from all corners of the world, but their experience in Jazz, Soul, Classical, Pop and Rock music takes the result into original and uncharted territory.
Their shows are lively and entertaining, taking you from beautiful songs to mind blowing tunes via a stream of hilarious banter.
Don’t miss what promises to be another great night in Carperby. Tickets are £13 in advance and £15 on the door.
