Sylvia Barnes & Sandy Stanage Live at Readifolk

Sylvia and Sandy have been working together since the 70s, when they were founder members of the seminal Scottish band Kentigern. Sylvia went on from there to become one of the elite group of female vocalists to sing with Battlefield Band, before moving to England with husband Jim in the 1980s, where they continued to work as a duo as well as fronting various bands, becoming firm favourites with folk club and festival audiences throughout the country and abroad and releasing a number of well-received recordings.

Sandy had previously been a member of another noted Glasgow band, Molendinar. After Kentigern he continued to work as a soloist and with numerous singers and musicians, as well as appearing on a number of recordings, before releasing two solo albums, Crossing the Line and The De'il…& Other Cronies, to much critical acclaim. He also spent four years on the teaching staff of the RSAMD (now Royal Conservatoire of Scotland).They perform widely at home and abroad, featuring the best of both traditional and modern music and songwriting.
