“There’s a magic in the way your two guitars and voices interweave. And I’m becoming a bit of a fan” -Brooks Williams
Silvington is a Plymouth-based duo formed in 2016 by two established performers, both members of the Folk on the Moor club in Ivybridge. In an interview on Radio Devon the story of their coming together was described by presenter David FitzGerald as “folk at first sight”.
Tricia Moore has a well-established pedigree which was honed over many years in the folk clubs and bars of Plymouth, Canterbury and Aberdeen, as well as a stint on a cruise ship and a few local television spots. More recently, solo performances around Cornwall and West Devon preceded a return to her folk roots at Folk on the Moor, where her delicate guitar playing and clear voice mark her out as a fine performer.
John Connor was a member of Fairfield, the resident band at Bromsgrove Folk Club in the West Midlands, for 23 years before relocating to Devon and establishing himself as a solo performer in the local folk scene. A multi-instrumentalist, he contributes to Silvington’s trademark vocal harmonies.
Purveyors of both traditional and contemporary songs, they are also prolific songwriters in their own right, and their repertoire rightly showcases many self-penned gems. They are increasingly to be found on the guest lists of clubs and festivals on their home turf and further afield. Well-crafted songs delivered with a close blend of vocals and instruments are hallmarks of their performances, recognised not only by their audiences but also by fellow artists.
