This potent partnership, heard live on BBC Radio 3’s In Tune, owes a lot to instinct, improvisation and alchemy, with Pound and Jay forging a path to new folk sounds – harmonica and accordion gelling almost as one instrument.
Romping across reels, bluegrass, swing, polkas and rachenitsas, the duo’s exuberant arrangements of traditional tunes cannot fail to impress.
A dazzling display of virtuosity performed with power and precision, Pound and Jay’s live show ducks and dives and pulls no punches, with a fair sprinkling of impressive original compositions to add to the rich mix.
Don’t miss them!
