Biography

CORNCROW. Kim Guy & Steve Hunt

Corncrow’s distinctive approach to (mainly) traditional songs and tunes has, in the past year, led to their inclusion on three highly regarded UK folk compilation albums and an impressive list of festival and club appearances, without undue hype or hullaballoo.
They are the resident act at Liskeard’s Barley Folk venue.

“Earthy yet ethereal, dreamy but direct, full of solitude yet offering much solace.” Leigh Folk Festival

“Whether playing two guitars together, or guitar and bouzouki, there was a clarity and a liquidity to their sound that I found captivating.” Readifolk Review

The seven tracks on “Sweet Nightingale,” reveal many of the duo’s experiences and influences, with discernible elements of Cornish social harmony singing & processional calendar customs, Breton fest noz, English traditional ballads & morris dance, and American old-time folk music. Kim and Steve play a variety of acoustic instruments including guitar, bouzouki, recorder, crowdy crawn and dulcimer, while Jackie Oates and Jason Steel make cameo appearances, on viola and banjo, respectively.


Influences include: Anne Briggs, Bert Jansch, Dave and Toni Arthur, Jacqui McShee, John Renbourn, June Tabor, Lal Waterson, Mandy Morton, Martin Carthy, Robin and Barry Dransfield, Robin Williamson, Sandy Denny, Shelagh McDonald, Shirley Collins, Simon Nicol, Tim Hall, Tim Hart and Maddy Prior, Black Sabbath, Bucca, Fairport Convention, Flibbertigibbet, Heart, Led Zeppelin, Morris On, Mellow Candle, The Owl Service, Pentangle, Planxty, Spriguns, Steeleye Span, Tir Na Nog, Trees and The Wicker Man.
