"We are so excited to be traveling and playing on stage again, it's lovely to be able to perform live and experience that personal connection with the audience."

"Enchanting", says Tim Carroll / FolkWords UK, "Listening to these perfectly balanced voices adds an entrancing level of attraction. If hitting ‘replay’ is any judge, then it certainly makes its mark".  

 

"Lovely stuff", says Dave Pegg of Fairport Convention.  

 

Avon Faire performs in concert, folk and art venues, historic festivals and special events, sharing their magical vocal blend and songs with love.
