Nancy Kerr and James Fagan won the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Duo in 2003. Both from musical families, Nancy’s fiddle and viola playing mixes beautifully with the striking rhythmic texture of James’s guitar-bouzouki and they are both successful singer-songwriters.
Nancy is the daughter of English performer Sandra Kerr and Northumbrian piper Ron Elliott and was a student of the late Will Taylor. She has toured as a fiddler and singer since turning 14, working internationally with Eliza Carthy and teaching fiddle in the UK. Nancy has a large knowledge of English ballads and crafts many of her own. She has recorded with Sandra Kerr, Tim van Eyken, Eliza Carthy, John Kirkpatrick, Sarah Jones and Brian Peters.
James is a member of Australian folk band, The Fagans, with his parents Bob and Marg, and sister Kate. A specialist player of the Irish flat-backed bouzouki — the guitar-shaped version of which has become his trademark — he has given workshops and masterclasses on this versatile instrument around Australia, the UK and in Canada with Nancy. He has recorded with The Fagans, Alistair Hulett, Jimmy Gregory, Eliza Carthy, John Kirkpatrick and Luke Daniels.
