Billy Hill Dan Stewart
A mix of different styles, but mainly Contemporary, Irish and Old Time.
Billy Hill has been playing folk fiddle since he was seven, and learns with Pete Cooper. (He loves the bluesy, syncopated Appalachian stuff best + Cajun music, and anything by Aidan O’Rourke.) Still only 14, he’s been performing at festivals and folk clubs for the last four years, and has won several awards and competitions, including Battle of the Buskers (People’s Choice). He has supported Bruce Molsky, Dave Swarbrick, Tim Eriksen and Eliza Carthy.
Dan Stewart is a leading clawhammer banjo player and guitarist. He plays regularly in three bands: Rattle on the Stovepipe (with Dave Arthur and Pete Cooper); Long Hill Ramblers (with Laura Hockenhull, Ben Paley and Tab Hunter); and also in a duo with his sister, fiddler Sarah Tadros, performing Irish, Scottish, Greek and English folk music.
