Lucy Wan marks the welcome return of this near legendary duo. Having been the catalyst for the group Last Nights Fun Chris and Denny have gone back to their alchemical pairing. The elements of guitar, anglo concertina and vocals are transmuted into a wonderful golden glow

Chris & Denny are a masterful duo, a soulful and deeply original pairing. When playing live they exhibit a near psychic link between them, improvisational and inspired in their music, hilarious in their banter.

After essaying various lineup permutations and augmentations - notably the iconic ensemble Last Night’s Fun - over the past few years, those two nigh-inseparable touring companions Chris and Denny have now reverted to their initial dynamic duo format and released a fabulous new CD [Lucy Wan]. The incredible bond that Irishman Denny and “Goolishman” Chris formed when they met on the 90s Hull session scene has never waned, and together they make an entirely unmistakable sound, a blend and delivery that simply could not be achieved by any other musicians on the folk circuit.

Concertina wizard Chris Sherburn accompanied fiddle player and singer Bella Hardy at the Upper Chapel in Norfolk Street last Friday, but he's in more familiar company alongside singer and guitarist Denny Bartley with whom he was worked both as a duo and as part of Last Night's Fun. A stirring collection of traditional songs and tunes.
