Johns and Nowak
Camilla Johns and Andy Nowak met at a bluegrass festival. They are an English acoustic duo that like to have fun with American music; weaving together mandolin and guitar and singing songs of heartache and longing.
Their music is sometimes joyful, sometimes wistful; steeped in the American tradition and all that comes with it – from fiddle tunes to folk songs, from driving instrumentals and gentle ballads; some traditional, some self-penned.
Accomplished instrumentalists, they are a brand new duo that hail from a background of glitzy London folk bands, the Bristol jazz and UK acoustic music scene, with debut album of the year nominations and tuition from some of America’s greatest acoustic musicians.
