Skinner & T'witch had a fantastic time on their recent mini tour south, where they played live at Chippenham Folk Festival, Bracknell Folk Club, The Carpenter's Arms in Miserden, and at The Forest of Dean Folk Club...

They're delighted by these super reviews:

'It was a joy to have Skinner & T'witch perform for us. We had some good chuckles, brief interludes of pathos, and perhaps even occasional bathos, some bits to join in with, and we all left with a glow. What more could you ask? I'm already looking forward to their next visit'. Steve Primarolo, Bracknell Folk Club

'Skinner & T'witch are excellent live. They are not only very good musicians but are very entertaining as well.' Ian Freedman, Readifolk Radio Show

'A very varied and entertaining evening tonight at The Carpenter's Arms, with Skinner and T'witch. We had folk classics like "Crazy Man Michael" and "Blackwaterside", with Steve demonstrating his prowess on his lovely Spanish guitars. In contrast to this were their own well known comedy songs like "Everybody's Grotty" and "Back to the Bills". Unsurprisingly, "You’re Always Right" produced a lot of entertaining banter, but no agreement. We also had a number of new songs inspired by our time in lockdown. "Ping" was a humorous critique of the NHS Covid App, while "Working from home" considered both the positive and negative aspects. Paul Schofield, The Carpenters Arms, Miserden

Whilst on tour, Skinner & T'witch also very much enjoyed giving interviews to BBC Radio Gloucestershire, BBC Radio Wiltshire, and BBC Radio Berkshire, and playing live on Clive Southerton's Soft Rock and Acoustic show on Dean Radio. You can listen again to Clive's show via:
