James Hickman and Dan Cassidy
A transatlantic duo inspired by the traditions of America and Britain.
Hickman’s emotive, soaring vocals and driving guitar is complemented by Cassidy’s ingenious and virtuosic fiddling. Their sound flows from the connection between British and American folk and is bursting with all the humour, heartbreak and excitement of these genres. The lively English wit of Hickman is set against Cassidy’s bone-dry irony and American drawl as they take audiences on a dynamic and unforgettable transatlantic journey.
Essence Of Eva is to raise awareness of Eva' tragic story and funds for cancer charity Melanoma UK. As Eva Cassidy was taken by this horrid disease, the aim of this event is to help and support others in memory of Eva.
