Eddie and Frank started off together in the late 60's as a duo playing in folk clubs. They parted company after a year or two for Eddie to pursue a solo career round the UK, Europe, and the far East. With a number of albums under his belt, he was joined by John James the Welsh guitarist for eight years, singing and playing ragtime, bluegrass and blues music.
Frank joined the Teesside Fettlers and quite a number of other artists in the meantime, playing traditional and contemporary music on guitar and double bass
Upon their retirement they decided to get together to play and sing mainly American music, Ragtime, Bluegrass and the 20's and 30's era of people like Irvin Berlin, Gershwin, Bob Wills, Cab Calloway amongst others, and some of Eddie's own compositions.

They provide a 'fun night' of happy chat and humorous songs and tunes.
