Mick & Andrea Scott
They met at a local folk club in 1971. Andrea needed a guitarist and Mick needed a woman. They played on the Leicester folk scene for a decade and then work and children took over until they retired 5 years ago when then turned full circle and started making music again. They have enjoyed catching up on all the music they have missed over the past 35 years. Their early influences of Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, Tom Paxton and Stefan Grossman still shine through tempered with lots of new influences and songs both traditional and contemporary.
