Will Duke and Vic Gammon have played together since the 1970s when they found themselves living only a short distance apart in Brighton and sharing a mutual interest in traditional music.

They played in dance bands, performed as a duo and in various other combinations.

Vic is well-known to Tynefolk as a club regular. (read more...)
