MarisaJack and Davy



Bedford based folk trio MarisaJack&Davy formed in 2015 in order to play at the DIY shows and house concerts they were organising. A floor spot for Stick in the Wheel’s folk night on The Golden Hinde encouraged them to further explore British folk music and they were soon seduced by the music of Shirley Collins, The Young Tradition and Nic Jones. MarisaJack&Davy’s unconventional interpretation of the tradition is shaped by the harmonic blend of their three unique voices, acoustic guitar styles and their music backgrounds. Marisa Straccia is an illustrator and plaintive finger picking guitarist, Davy Willis a singer and artist from Tonbridge via L.A. and Jack Sharp, best known as singer for psych rock band Wolf People. MarisaJack&Davy run a folk night called Mill Race Folk, a unique and intimate acoustic folk night, which acts as an inspiration and platform for experimenting with traditional songs. Shows are held in various locations around Bedford including an 18th century watermill, a museum, a community boat and a 15th century timber-framed market hall.
