> James Delarre & Saul Rose


‘Masters of their craft. This duo is just brilliant’
FATEA Records


With the timeless combination of fiddle and box, James and Saul have been making music together for a long time now. The duo intertwine seamlessly; dancing around the tunes between the notes, finding space and air, and breathing fresh life and energy into the music. 

Their forthcoming album, Kith and Kin, which is a nod towards their enduring friendship and expanding families, is a collection of favourite tunes and songs from their live set over the years. It will launch in November 2023. Read more in this Spiral Earth feature.
