Somehow, they never leave the genre entirely though, and there is always a feeling of great musical comfort that emanates from the undeniably traditional routes of their playing style.
Over the years the duo have attracted the best in local talent, and are often accompanied by some of the greatest musicians the area has to offer. They regularly invite others to play at their shows.
Their newest album Nuts & Bolts has been described at subtle yet exciting, and features an astonishing array of guest musicians that the duo have worked with in the past, including the likes of John Spiers (ex Bellowhead), Phillip Henry (Edgelarks), Phil Hudson (The Lighthouse Family), and Roger Flack (The Tabs).
