Friday 17th April 2020 8:00pm,  Church House, South Tawton - Tickets £10

THE “ Titan of Twang “ and the “ Concertina Crooner” team up in a dynamic new duo. Geoff Laleman, patriarch of a folk dynasty – as dad of Seth,Sean and Sam and father-in-law of Cara Dillon and Kathryn Roberts – teases English and Irish folk, Americana and jazz songs out of his vintage duet concertina. Rob Murch brings the “ wow factor” to the banjo, with his unique,punchy fingerstyle playing. Both live on Dartmoor, so it was inevitable they’d gang-up musically. Expect self-written and West Country songs, rattling folk tunes and foot-stomping ragtime and cakewalk riffs. Rob’s percussive finger-ballet up and down the fret board of his 100 year-old instrument is mesmerising.He’s revered throughout the UK for his long-time work with the renowned Dartmoor Pixie Band and The Watch trio. After 50 years as a journalist music-loving Geoff recorded his debut CD ,”After All These Years” at the age of 69, which garnered four and five-star reviews and national radio airplay.He’s acclaimed for his “ masterful” playing of the rare Crane duet concertina and his “ rich, melodic voice.” The duo’s relaxed yet sparkling stage presence together is bubbling with the “feel -good” factor.
