Tom Kitching and Gren Bartley are one of the brightest young acts on the folk scene today. Having met at Loughborough University through presenting a folk show on campus radio, they have released two albums together as well as maintaining healthy solo careers (Tom was recently in Leicester when his band Pilgrim's Way supported Kris Drever). Gren is a Leicester regular whose guitar playing leaves jaws dropping – he is the only person who can play Richard Thompson's 1952 Vincent Black Lightning as well as its writer – while Tom's bright fiddle playing and dry on-stage humour provide the perfect complement.
