Marry Waterson & David A. Jaycock


Marry Waterson is part of a remarkable musical dynasty. Her mum was the inventive singer and song-writer Lal Waterson, and her uncle and aunt were also members of pioneering folk group the Watersons. Marry is a singer best known for her rich, striking vocal contributions to numerous recordings and live performances by various members of the Waterson family, she is also a member of Blue Murder, an occasional English Folk ‘Supergroup’. David A. Jaycock is a fine multi-instrumentalist, memorably described by James Yorkston as a ‘Cornish hermit and underground psychedelic freak-ball’. Their collaborative album ‘Two Wolves’ was one of the highlights of last year, with each of its songs brimming with nuance and depth. Although covering some deeply personal subjects, Marry’s skills as a singer, lyricist and, above all, a story-teller bring a very human touch, enabling the songs to maintain their focus and intensity without overwhelming the listener. David’s compositions are beguiling and inventive, providing the ideal musical foil for Marry’s compelling voice.
