Cathryn Craig and Brian Willoughby - Brunch Barnstormers

Staggeringly good…truly magical guitar work, vocals to lift your heart and soul, with songs that are utterly unforgettable...”

Cathryn Craig is from Virginia and has built a strong reputation as both performer and songwriter. She has sung with Shel Silverstein, Chet Atkins, The Righteous Brothers and Jorma Kaukonen. Her great-grandfather Jacob Sowder was recorded by Cecil Sharp and is featured in Sharp’s book English Folk Songs from the Southern Appalachians. Brian Willoughby is best known for his virtuoso performances on electric and acoustic guitar, with progressive folk/rock band Strawbs and also with Mary Hopkin, Joe Brown, Roger Whittaker, Bridget St. John, Jim Diamond and Monty Python. With a combined working history reading like a who’s who of household names in music, now it’s their turn at the front of the stage, to sing and play their own well-crafted brand of acoustic guitar-based material.
