Sara grew up in New Hampshire but has lived in Scotland and England for over 40 years. As a youngster in North Carolina she first heard a lot of mountain music and her love for the old-time banjo music and songs developed from this experience. In her adult life she has studied folklore and performed music from the various areas in which she has lived. Before she moved to Scotland, Sara was part of “The Golden Ring” with people like Ed Trickett and Gordon Bok, a well-known group of singers interested in traditional song.

Kieron was born in the United States and grew up in Britain gaining a great love of the music of both traditions as well as the contemporary scene. He has become a performer of traditional songs from the US and from the UK and many of the contemporary songs he sings he has written himself.
