“John Richards epic sea song ‘Honour & Praise’ is magnificent” COLIN IRWIN FOLK ROOTS
John and Jim have worked together since they were members of Maurice and the Minors working folk clubs and festivals in the 80s. You may not have heard John sing himself but there is every chance you might have heard one of his songs. He is one of the most covered writers on the UK Folk Scene and has an excellent reputation for powerful songs and lyrics. Jim is held in very high regard as a Double Bass and keyboard player in both Jazz and folk circles and he has an outstanding talent for adding even more atmosphere to John’s songs with his wonderfully sympathetic arrangements. John is also full of very amusing little anecdotes and manages to seamlessly move between the emotions in his songs and stories. He says that if he can make people sing, laugh and cry at his gigs, he’ll always go home a happy man.

'John Richards is one of our finest writers and singers. He specialises in powerful songs which you can neither ignore nor forget. Listen to Shine On, it’s a perfect song deserving to be sung every night of the week in a club somewhere.'
