John Tams and Barry Coope are a unique collaboration. John, the composer of music for the stage show War Horse and the TV series Sharpe, has been described by Mojo magazine as ‘one of the giants of folk’. His musical career extends back to the Muckram Wakes, taking in the Albion Band and Home Service as well as solo albums. He is a five times winner of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. Barry Coope is of course one third of acclaimed accapella group Coope, Boyes & Simpson. Playing as a duo since the early 1990’s, their sound is rich and often includes unusual vocal harmonies. Together, Tams & Coope are former winners of BBC Folk Awards Duo of the Year.
