Described as “quite simply the best purveyors of acappella song on these Islands”, English trio Coope Boyes and Simpson combine unique reworkings of traditional material and well-crafted, original songs with beautifully memorable tunes, soaring harmonies and words that strike a chord. As if…, their latest album, was greeted with four star reviews from The Guardian, Songlines and Mojo, live sessions for BBC Radio 2 and BBC 6 Music and nominations for Best Album and Best Band at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

“As passionate a tour de force of unaccompanied singing as you can imagine.”– Mojo
