Mojo Music Magazine – Colin Irwin

Sometimes, a humble solo fiddler is all you need.

One of The Demon Barbers, Bryony Griffith’s “traditional tunes for an English fiddle player”, is sublime.

From the opening Morris tune, Constant Billy, through a broad gamut of hornpipes and jigs, her touch and tone is almost an affirmation of time-honoured values of folk music; while Ian Stephenson’s guitar and bass additions keep it contemporary.
