Described as two of the best artists on the folk scene today, Mick Ryan and Paul Downes will be performing as part of the Devoran Acoustic Sessions on Friday, March 2.

Mick Ryan is well known as a fine singer of traditional and original songs. He was described by Folk Roots as 'definitely the most underrated singer in the country.' He wrote both comic and serious material for the band Crows in the 1980s and has since written for radio and a series of highly successful folk musicals: A Tollpuddle Man, A Day's Work, The Voyage, Tanks for the Memory and more recently, The Navvy's Wife.

Paul Downes has a "sensitive, yet fun approach" to live performances which puts him among the most respected artists on the British acoustic music scene today. He has been introduced, much to his embarrassment, as one of the greatest acoustic guitarist in the world.

It is easy to see why when you see the dazzling array of styles he performs with effortless brilliance, but at the same time, considers himself a singer of songs rather than a guitar technician. Paul has a rich musical background that has progressed through working with Phil Beer (Show of Hands), The Arizona Smoke Revue, Pete Seeger and The Joyce Gang.

Together, Mick Ryan and Paul Downes have been well received and will be providing an evening of singing, music and entertainment of the very highest quality at Devoran Village Hall.

Tickets are £10.50 available from hallforcornwall or 01872 262466. The show starts at 7.30pm, doors 7pm. Audience are welcome to bring their own refreshments, interval tea and coffee will be available.
