Wilcox:Hulse may be familiar to you as 2/3 of Queensbury Rules – old friends of TwickFolk. Those who came to the Patch to see Coope, Boyes and Simpson early in 2016 will remember the sparkling set from the duo which began the evening.
Queensbury Rules formed in the early years of the last decade. After countless tours throughout Europe and North America, and releasing 7 studio albums (3 of these through the Fellside Record label) with many compositions receiving national and international airplay (Mike Harding called ‘Sinking Town’ one of his favourite tracks of 2006 on his Radio 2 folk show), the band called it a day in February 2011.
Since then, the two have taken on different projects as far-ranging as presenting regular radio programmes to running a personalised song business, but the pull of writing and playing live again never left them, and the result is the new duo of Wilcox:Hulse.
With a unique take on roots music and their trademark strong harmonies, duo have been picking up where the old band left off and reminding us of just how darn good they are.
Both of the videos on this page were recorded at Audley Theatre, Staffordshire, 8th November 2014 by Geoff Berrow:
