Funny stories… serious songs… great singing… inventive guitar playing…

Who are they?

Cathryn Craig & Brian Willoughby!

With a combined working history reading like a Who’s Who of household names in music… Righteous Brothers, Mary Hopkin, Chet Atkins, Strawbs and many more, now it’s their turn at the front of the stage, to sing and play their own well-crafted brand of acoustic guitar-based material.

Cathryn and Brian met in Michael Snow's recording studio in Nashville. Brian and he had written the song Hard Luck Café…Michael said he knew just the person to sing it!

When Brian came to record the first album of his own songs, Black & White (which includes Hard Luck Café), he invited Cathryn to sing. Together they wrote The Fire, Alice's Song 
and Black & White.  

Apart from Love Belongs Right Here, a Mary Hopkin/Brian composition sung by Mary, Cathryn sang on the whole album and so the duo of Cathryn Craig & Brian Willoughby was born…

Cathryn Craig
& Brian Willoughby
And...  Credit where credit is due!

“Long live traditional music, even when it's only just been written” 
(The Living Tradition) 

“…sublime guitar work and one of the finest voices around” 

Their “Alice’s Song” was an Aled Jones “Highlight of the Year” on BBC Radio 2.

Cathryn was Simon Mayo's star guest on BBC Radio 2Day, live from Nashville.

The Telegraph’s Martin Chilton named the duo as his “Folk Gig Pick” in 2015.

Rather than trying to describe their music and the wonderful reception at shows, we felt it best to leave that to promoters /organisers themselves… 

A superb selection of material, together with many humorous stories of travels on the road of life. Not to be missed.

Welcome return of Cathryn and Brian to the Festival. If we hadn't managed to book them, I would have traveled to see them elsewhere.
