Marisa Jack & Davy

Marisa Jack & Davy are a folk trio from Bedfordshire. They perform traditional folk music specialising in strange old British songs, mainly sourced from their local Bedfordshire area. Their eclectic repertoire includes a song about trees, a song about a disastrous aristocratic wedding and a song about an eccentric farmer who ploughs his field with a team of rats!

In 2015 they started Mill Race Folk, atmospheric nights of beautiful acoustic folk concerts at Bromham Mill and The Place Theatre. The best folk musicians in the country have played there including Martin Carthy, Stick in Wheel and Wizz Jones.

The trio, as Mill Race Folk, host informal folk sessions in Bedford at The Basement at Bunyan. They’re encouraging folk musicians of all ages, cultures and backgrounds to perform a floor spot, so get in touch with them if you have folk songs you’d like to share.
