Beverley and Alan Young have got folk music covered. Their joint repertoire covers British traditional, country, blues, gospel, Hawaiian, Irish and modern American female song-writers. But at the core is Beverley’s British and Irish traditional music, Al’s blues … and the old-time country music that so often draws from both those traditions.
Some of their music is new, some of it goes back years, but Beverley and Al put their own unique stamp on all of it, drawing from a wide repertoire of “roots” music and accompanying themselves on guitar, autoharp, steel guitar and dulcimer.
Beverley and Al are leading figures in New Zealand folk and acoustic music. Both have won NZ Folk Album of the Year (Tui) awards and they have performed separately and together at top festivals in New Zealand and Australia.
