Mitchell and Vincent are an acoustic duo from Dorset and Somerset. Their first appearance at the Goose was supporting Jackie Oates and they return in 2019 to headline a club night.
Much of their repertoire is instrumental, played mainly on the fiddle and guitar, and is based on the folk music of the British Isles but this is also mixed in with a few broadly traditional songs.
They have performed at various festivals and concerts around the UK (including Glastonbury, Broadstairs, Beverley, Oxford and Lyme Folk Weekend) as well as supporting great musicians such as Ralph McTell and Wizz Jones, Tim Edey Trio, Jackie Oates Duo, Damien O’Kane and Kate Rusby.
Acoustic magazine described their second album ‘Circling the Square’ with, “At all times, the interplay between David Mitchell’s guitar and Graham Vincent’s fiddle is quite stunning.”
Bright Young Folk said “Their sound is much deeper and richer than you would expect from an acoustic duo. Intricate instrumentalism and pulsing rhythms abound … providing skilled arrangements and expert delivery of tunes and songs which showcase the vibrancy, and variety, of folk music across Britain. A thoroughly engaging and enjoyable experience.”
