As well as being married, John McCusker and Heidi Talbot are two of the best-known names on the folk music scene. They have been playing in each other’s bands, touring and writing songs together as well as recording on solo albums for ten years now. Their schedules must be an annual challenge, so the news that they are to celebrate this decade of music making with their first duo EP is great – and even better that the five-track EP will be supported by an extensive UK and European tour in 2018.
They have launched a Kickstarter Campaign for the EP for which there are some great rewards including the opportunity to record any song or tune of your choosing and a concert in your living room! You can also, of course, pre-order the EP for which you’ll also receive an exclusive acoustic track.
As we’ve mentioned before, these pledge campaigns are a great way of supporting artists ahead of release, but they are also a way of being part of that ‘journey’. John and Heidi will keep supporters posted on developments with an exclusive video diary. So, if you want to be part of this project then head on over to their Kickstarter page here:
Here’s a reminder of why we think they’re music is so great. This is a live video from 2015 of them performing with Ian Carr and Staffan Lindfors:
