Cruel Folk

Cruel Folk are Sean Holden and Paul Holden. From Darkest Norfolk. They both have several decades experience playing live music; initially in the rock and jazz worlds, but more recently on the English folk circuit, having found a shared interest in traditional music. That interest was originally prompted by the power and authenticity of folk’s oral tradition; who could not be intrigued by the words and experiences of our ancesters? Now in addition to playing both traditional and contemporary material they write original, often historical ballads. Expect dark tales, accompanied by bouzouki, guitar and other instruments.
