Studio Guest Skinner and T’witch on ‘It’s All About Folk’ with Danny Matheson 10pm Wed 27th Feb 2019
Skinner & T’witch
Skinner & T’witch are an original, contemporary folk acoustic duo, performing folk, flamenco, and theatre style songs. Drawing on music-hall and vaudeville traditions, Skinner & T’witch’s show combines comedy and satire with music to melt the heart. They have been on the road since 2014; released three albums; performed widely around the UK; and recently visited the States. This year they are on route to Australia…
Their second album, ‘The Fool’s Journey’, has so far been played by 160+ folk/acoustic DJ’s on 200+ radio stations, internationally their latest album, ‘Everybody’s Grotty’, has been very well received by the folk fraternity, and is being played widely, from Glasgow to Melbourne.
And here are some testimonies, if needed:
‘Skinner & T’witch have been described as “a pair of comic geniuses” and I would not disagree – they are unique: there is nobody to compare them with’. Tom Brown, The Living Tradition
‘Steve (Skinner) ought to rate himself as one of the best songwriters, because he’s really outstanding’. Doug Welch, KentFolk, BBC Radio Kent
‘T’witch has a hell of a voice, and she knows how to use it’. Liz Franklin, The Folk Garden, Blues and Roots Radio/Eden Folk, Eden FM
