We are a folk duo called 'Mitchell and Vincent', who play a mix of traditional tunes and songs on fiddle and guitar.

Mitchell and Vincent An unusual coincidence – we both trained as luthiers when we left school. Yep, both of us wanted to spend our time making guitars. Life, of course, always gets in the way somewhat and by the time our paths crossed we’d both retrained. I’d been designing furniture, then houses, got qualified and started running my own architectural practice. Dave had been to University and trained as a teacher. Once music has a hold of you it doesn’t let go easily and Dave & I found ourselves playing together in a ceilidh band called Fiddlestix. We realised we had very similar musical tastes and both wanted to spend a lot more time playing music, so we started a duo………. A few years have passed and we’re now very busy, have two albums out and another in the pipeline. Knowing that we were both guitar makers, you are asking “Do they play their own guitars?” Dave does indeed play a guitar he made, It’s a wonderful sounding nylon strung classical guitar with a cedar top – we’ve done so many gigs in the last few years that it’s starting to look a bit tatty – but luckily Dave has a couple more he’s made as spares for when the time comes to retire the old girl! I finally got round to making myself a violin, which is now one of my gigging violins. We’re both making more instruments should you be interested in buying one.

Artree L, 2 years ago

Guitarist David Mitchell and fiddle player/vocalist Graham Vincent have been gaining an enviable reputation on the folk circuit in the UK in the last couple of years – both at clubs and festivals. Their debut Artree Live performance in 2015 was so well received – we had to have them back to headline!
