James Hickman & Dan CassidyThis event has now finished
An Artsreach debut for this Award-Winning Transatlantic Folk Duo
This virtuoso duo create a unique sound that flows from the connection between British and American folk, bursting with all the humour, heartbreak and excitement of these genres.
James Hickman's emotive vocals, driving guitar and lively English wit are complemented by Dan Cassidy's virtuosic fiddling, bone-dry irony and American drawl.
Dan Cassidy (brother of the late Eva Cassidy) grew up in Maryland, but is now based in Iceland. James Hickman grew up in Shropshire on a diet of folk and bluegrass, and now tours internationally with Uiscedwr.
Previously crowned winners of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award, expect a dynamic and unforgettable transatlantic journey from these rising stars.
