‘Terrific...I kept hearing lots of stuff, Incredible String Band, Nick Drake, John Martyn-yet at the same time their music it is very much their own - totally and utterly beautiful.’
Mike Harding BBC 2
Really beautiful songs... fragile gentle and lovely- and no extraneous guff
'Two performers who confidently uphold the richness of the British folk tradition with superbly crafted self-written songs and fine interpretations of English folk song, beautifully sung with great sincerity and with impeccable musical accompaniment. Their beguiling lyrics often draw upon the stories, legends and folklore of the South-West. These two are well loved by our audiences and we strongly recommend them to all other clubs, large or small.'
Della Hooke, Red Lion 'Folk Club of the Year' BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2006
Absolutely magnificent, brilliant instrumentation and vocals- destined for great things Excellent mix of self-penned and traditional, something for everybody and great choruses
Steve Dickinson, Promoter- Everyman Folk Club
Ros Brady and Si Barron performed a brilliant set at our club in April 2009. We were looking for a good support act and had heard great things of this young duo. All the reports were true, but understated! What energy, skill, variety and polish this couple showed, professional to the core and highly pleasurable to listen to.
We are booking them to headline at our club next year and booking them for Swanage Folk Festival 2010. This duo deserve to go places. I recommend them to anyone.
Kathy Dunn, Swanage Folk Festival Director
Barron Brady have remarkable talent. Their music has both vitality and intimacy and their choice of material and song writing offers refreshing honesty. Ros's singing has a delicacy which demands attention and reaches into people's hearts whilst Simon's guitar playing displays formidable technical ability. Their arrangements are innovative and quite beautiful to listen to. As performers they have a warm and engaging stage presence which make then a delight to listen too. Not to be missed
