Suntrap are a 4 piece folk-inspired group with beautiful entrancing vocal harmonies on original, contemporary and traditional material. At TwickFolk they’ll be presenting songs from their brand new album.
Sara Byers (Vocals, Guitar, Accordion, Banjo & Whistle), Mary Wilson (Vocals & Violin) and John Sandall (Violin & Viola) have recently been joined by TwickFolk’s ukulele-slinger Sue Graves, known as the ‘Surrey Nightingale’.
Sara and Mary began singing together after meeting at Cecil Sharp House in 1996. The following year they made their first demo at Dave Pegg’s Woodwork Studios and Suntrap have gone on to make four highly regarded CDs, the most recent of these released on Fellside Recordings. They have played all over the UK and Europe at major folk festivals, folk clubs and art centres.
Both the videos on this page were recorded at the Ram Club, Thames Ditton, by Peter Bradley.
Craig Joiner has been a professional musician for over 25 years, writing songs recorded by the likes of Heart, Bonnie Tyler, Eddie Money and Steps. Surprisingly, 2019 marks the first ever Craig Joiner solo album. Craig’s musical journey began in 1987 as a member of Romeo’s Daughter. Their self-titled debut on Jive Records was produced by the legendary Robert ‘Mutt’ Lange (Def Leppard, The Cars, ACDC, Shania Twain) and spawned a whirlwind tour of the USA and an appearance on the Billboard charts.
