About

Bristol Folk Festival 2016

Vicky Cooper and Richard Toller are a traditional folk duo based in the Bristol area. They sing solo and in close harmony, sometimes unaccompanied and sometimes accompanied on a range of instruments including fiddle, mandolin, guitar and banjo. On occasion a set may even include some clog dancing from Vicky. Debut single ‘The Cherry Tree Carol’ was released in late 2019, and work is progressing on a first album, due for release in 2022. With a repertoire ranging from murder ballads to bawdy drinking songs, their material may be hundreds of years old but their approach is energetic, sophisticated and timeless.
