"We are a three voice unaccompanied harmony group singing traditional and contemporary folk songs, some music hall material, with some Early Music and humorous songs for good measure. Many of our songs encourage (even require) audience participation and we hope they get as much enjoyment out of it as we do"

Vincent Cross

vincentcross

 

Vincent Cross exemplifies the folk music tradition by writing and performing contemporary songs and ballads. Born in Ireland, raised in Australia, he was influenced by local traditional players in Ireland as well as inspired by the contemporary singer-songwriters he encountered on his travels through Europe.

“powerful narrative ballads of real-life events”
-fRoots Magazine(UK)

His respect for authentic mountain sounds and styles brought him to the attention of folk legend Odetta, and his adaptations of various roots styles distinguishes his distinct repertoire, as it draws on rare old tunes discovered in the field, and even more obscure recordings found on dusty record shelves.

“Blends the old blues traditions of Mississippi Fred McDowell and Son House with the folk traditions of Dave Van Ronk and Tom Rush. Give his CD a listen. You will be rewarded”
— -John Sillberg, CKOL (Small Time Radio Show)

 

He has performed for and shared the stage with Glen Hansard, Chris Thile, Richard Buckner, and folk legend Odetta. He tours extensively in Europe, Canada and Australia, where he has performed at TelemarkFestivalen (Norway), The Hebridean Celtic Festival (Scotland). Stateside, Cross has performed at The Dripping Springs Songwriter Festival, and The South Florida Folk Festival. His recent release, Old Songs for Modern Folk, hit #2 in the Folk DJ album charts for 2016.
