SimpleFolk are local Suffolk duo Rachel Dodd (vocals) and Steve Christopher (vocals and guitar). They are building quite a reputation across East Anglia with their ‘stripped back’ versions of contemporary and traditional folk songs.

Steve moved up from Hampshire three years ago, having been a member of the Romsey based “Cuckoo Pint” folk band. He first performed with Rachel when she agreed to join him on stage during a ‘showcase’ set at the Milkmaid Folk Club towards the end of the following year. Their first album, ‘From Black to Blue’, will be available from the end of February 2018 and brings together a collection of their favourite songs from the current set.
