Discovery are Jeff and Elaine Gillett.
Jeff Gillett is an experienced folk guitarist and singer. As well as performing solo, he has worked as an accompanist for (among others) Ron Taylor, Jim Causley and Sarah Morgan. He has been described by Keith Kendrick as ‘arguably the most sensitive accompanist on planet Earth’. As Discovery, Jeff and Elaine have appeared at folk clubs and festivals from Sussex to Ontario!
Together, Jeff and Elaine’s voices combine to create beautiful harmonies and sensitive interpretations of traditional and modern folk songs, which they present with warmth and humour. The songs are enhanced by Jeff’s supremely tasteful, restrained yet inventive accompaniments on guitar, concertina, Appalachian dulcimer and mandola.
Their repertoire also includes poems from William Blake’s ‘Songs of Innocence and of Experience’ sung to Jeff’s original tunes.
For all the Facebook Stage performances you will need to open the Folk Weekend Oxford Facebook page. (https://www.facebook.com/folkweekendoxford) The performances will 'go live' on there. They will all be available after the event as well in the videos section. All these performances are free, but do add to the performers' and/or FWO's tip box (https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/folkweekendoxford)
