Described by The Guardian as
“the finest instrumental duo on the traditional scene” and twice winners of the BBC Radio 2 folk award for Best Duo, John Spiers and Jon Boden have made the genre of spontaneous, punky English folk very much their own stomping ground. Loud, proud, and with just a few acoustic instruments, they create a multitude of textures upon which they present traditional stories and dance music which are as much at home on the main stage of Cambridge Folk Festival as they are in a lock-in at the local pub.
For Back Yard Songs, Spiers and Boden are inviting fans to suggest traditional songs or dance tunes from the area that they can perform to give the show a more local flavour.
