Performer Information

Keith Kendrick And Silvia Needham

Keith and Sylvia sing a wide variety of English traditional and traditionally influenced contemporary songs, (specialising but, not exclusively, in maritime songs and sea shanties) and work extensively all over the UK, Europe and all over the world performing in Folk Clubs, Village Halls, Arts Centres, house concerts, at Folk Festival, Arts Festivals, Maritime Festivals. As soloists, both have a very wide ranging repertoire. Their strong voices and uncannily compatible and complimentary styles of delivery, afford an exciting enhancement in duo and between them they produce a striking acapella harmony sound revered by many. Keith and Sylvia also frequently accompany themselves and play lively dance tunes on three different systems of the only English invented musical instrument - the Concertina. They are also very capable and experienced workshop leaders on those instruments and a variety of other folk skills such as: part singing from two to a full choir, sea songs & shanties, dance music and song accompaniment.
