Metronome Folk Sessions — bringing together the best folk musicians from around the world, for intimate seated performances.
Mikey Kenney is an original. A passionate and well-respected advocate for traditional music – a brilliant Liverpool-style fiddler drawing primarily on his native North West English and Irish heritage – but grounded in a present-day, urban reality.
He is a musician with wide-open horizons and insatiable curiosity for new possibilities. As evidenced on his latest album, The Reverie Road (Penny Fiddle Records), Kenney’s songwriting is both adventurous and earth-bound, with his high lonesome voice exploring sun-drenched Italian vistas, dream worlds and sounds of the city. Mikey is currently working on a new album, due for release in autumn 2023.
Germa Adan writes and performs a tapestry of rich vocal and stringed harmonies, influenced by the overlapping identity with cultures, especially so in the Haitian, American and British folk influences that colour her sound.
She is well known for her unique use of the violin as an accompaniment to her vocals, using delicate yet intricate rhythm and harmonies.
