Bryony Griffith and Alice Jones
Bryony Griffith is an English fiddle player and singer from Huddersfield in West Yorkshire with a rich repertoire of English dance tunes and songs. Her career in folk music started in the acclaimed ceilidh band Bedlam in her teens and took her all over the UK festival scene. She later became musician for Dog Rose Morris, appearing on Jools Holland, and still plays for one of the country’s premier rapper teams, The Newcastle Kingsmen. She sang in the much-missed a cappella group The Witches of Elswick and was a founder member of the BBC Folk Award-winning Demon Barbers. Since 2017 Bryony has been Senior Lecturer in vocals and fiddle on the Folk Music degree at Leeds Conservatoire.
Alice Jones is a singer, multi-instrumentalist and dancer from Ripponden in West Yorkshire. Her background is deeply rooted in the English folk tradition and the music that she makes instantly reflects this strong influence. Alice sings mostly traditional songs accompanying herself on the piano or harmonium and sometimes only with foot percussion. The sensitive and intuitive arrangements of each song allow the stories to take centre stage and, inspired by her beginnings as a percussive dancer, they are loaded with a rhythm and energy that portrays her dancer’s heartbeat. Her distinctive voice and innovative style lends a fresh, modern perspective to traditional material and brings new life to old songs.
Together, Bryony and Alice released a highly-praised album A Year Too Late and a Month Too Soon in 2022.
"Straight up, beautiful and bold folk singing" Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2
"The intuitiveness and creativity of these two, individually, cannot be overstated, and together, it’s like a bomb going off! This body of work is a clear contender for CD of the year and, for me, of the decade… get it!" Keith Kendrick, The Living Tradition
"... performed by two of Yorkshire's finest, delivered with absolute conviction and palpable charm. A Year Too Late And A Month Too Soon is traditional folk music at its most beguiling." Dave McNally, Folk Radio UK
