Fleetwood Cave

Marion Fleetwood and Gregg Cave met through new folk supergroup TRADarrr. 

They share a love of performing live and for honest, expressive and original interpretations of traditional music from around the UK, combined with their own original material.           

Marion has a voice which has been described as 'mesmerising' and 'siren-esque', and plays all things bowed. Ashley Hutchings MBE has said she 'deserves to be ranked amongst the finest singers in this country'. She is a popular and well known figure on the folk scene, most recently best known as a multi-instrumentalist member and vocalist of new folk supergroup TRADarrr and The Jigantics. A former long time member of folk-rockers Meet on the Ledge and the award winning ColvinQuarmby - now known as The Gerry Colvin Band, with whom she still perfoms, she has loved occasionally being invited to play with  Feast of Fiddles. Marion  released her first solo album, 'Holding Space', in the summer of 2015.

Since forming folk-rock band CAVE when he was 18 years old, Gregg Cave, has been performing in concerts and at festivals in the UK and mainland Europe. In recent years Gregg has collaborated with musicians and storytellers and been commissioned by the Arts Council and National Trust to produce two separate pieces of performance.
Gregg is also a founder member of TRADarrr.  His album ‘Old England Grown New’ was released to critical acclaim, with BBC Introducing calling it 'very special'. In addition to the fine collection of Northamptonshire musicians joining Gregg on this album, Dave Swarbrick (ex-Fairport Convention) played fiddle on the opening track ‘The Bonny Lass of Anglesey’.

Their debut album as a duo, 'People Like Us', was Crowdfunded in just 8 weeks and recorded over 5 days in a village hall in Northampton, with the added musical input of Tali Trow (double bass) and Paul Johnston (drums and percussion). It includes new material from both Marion and Gregg, along with one cover – the Fairport Convention track 'Wizard of the Worldly Game' (with the definitive lyrics to the final verse sent to them by Simon Nicol himself after an exhaustive on-line search showed much confusion!). Friends of the pair joined them to complete the recording and include Simon Nicol and Chris Leslie of Fairport Convention, Anna Ryder, Edwina Hayes, Debs Earl and Chris Cleverley. It will be released in January 2017 and the 25 date 'People Like Us' Tour includes gigs across England and Wales.
