Maggie nor Paul are strangers to Shammick Acoustic, both being amongst our favourite performers, and this new collaboration will be a double treat. Maggie is a traditional singer, who through songs old and new, continues the tradition of music and storytelling passed on by her Irish family. Reared in the musically vibrant London-Irish community of the ‘60s and ‘70s, she and her brothers got the music from their father, Paddy Boyle from Donegal, as well as learning from Oliver Mulligan, a great singer from Co. Monaghan, also resident in London as she was growing up. She has built up an impressive catalogue of live and recorded work including film soundtracks, theatre and folk circuit appearances worldwide. She first got together with Paul Downes when both were working on Mick Ryan’s ballad opera, ‘The Pauper’s Path’, since when they have recorded a CD together, and started doing the round of clubs, concerts and festivals. Paul is Devon born and bred, hailing from Exmouth, but has travelled the world working with Phil Beer of Show of Hands, The Arizona Smoke Revue, Pete Seeger and The Joyce Gang. He is undoubtedly a great acoustic guitarist, performing a dazzling array of styles with effortless brilliance.
