Saturday 26 October Skinner & T’witch
Skinner & T’witch are an original, contemporary folk acoustic duo from Leeds, England and unlike any other group you are ever likely to see. Performing folk, flamenco, and theatre-style songs, they draw on music-hall and vaudeville traditions, combining comedy and satire with music to stir the soul.
Before they teamed up together each was an accomplished and highly regarded artist in their own right. Steve Skinner is a hi-profile guitarist, song writer and flamenco expert, comes from musical theatre. He previously managed a theatre company and toured the country with musical reviews such as The Cuts Show and the Third World Road Show, as well as performing as a solo artist with his own cult following and recordings. Sandra Twitchett has background in classical music and is a member of the famous Huddersfield Choral Society. She also has a great love of British folk and rock music, a wicked sense of humour and a passion for a better world. Together they produce the distinctive Skinner & T’witch sound.
They have been on the road together since 2014, released three acclaimed albums and performed widely around the UK. This year, on their first tour to Australia, they are heading to Woy Woy before returning to the US and home to Britain next year.
They bring a big international reputation as one of the most talented and original groups in many years. Don’t miss them when they hit the big lights of Woy Woy.

‘Definitely a melodical phenomenon’. The Narrowboat Sessions
‘Recreates the magic of a night at the music hall – Skinner and T’witch have given me a good chuckle with this album. T’witch’s vocals are particularly good.’ James Fagan, Thank Goodness It’s Folk, Sheffield

Exciting new Australian/Celtic folk and roots duo

Songs from Sadie and Jay’s previous album’s ‘Curious’ and ‘Rogue Folk’ have been award winners in national and international song competitions. Most recently they were finalists for ‘Song of the Year’ at The Australian Celtic Music Awards. Touring
highlights include venues and festivals in Australia, New Zealand and the UK. Naturally, they’re heading to Woy Woy. Don’t miss their peninsula debut!
