James Delarre & Saul Rose both have a serious pedigree in the folk genre: James with Eliza Carthy, Jim Moray, the Bombay Bicycle Club and Saul with, Waterson Carthy, Dansaul, Faustus among others. Now they are re-launching their live duo act with this tour and a new album.

The new record from this reunited pair of uber-experienced folk musicians, comes out in Autumn 2023. Kith and Kin (the title a nod towards their own enduring friendship and expanding families) is a collection of the favourite tunes and songs from their ‘perfectly balanced’ live set. With the timeless combination of fiddle and box, James and Saul have been making music together for a long time now and re-launch their live act after time focusing energies on their young families. Born out of friendship, the duo intertwine seamlessly; dancing around the tunes between the notes, finding space and air breathing life into the music they create together.
