Rob Murch and Michelle Holding

Rob Murch is a leading figure in the playing of English fingerstyle banjo, a style once popular at the turn of the 20th century and now rarely seen. He met Michelle Holding at a banjo workshop that he was leading and Michelle began learning classic fingerstyle banjo under Rob's guidance.

Unfortunately the distance between their houses is too far to pop in for a brew, so they started meeting at festivals and events whenever possible, to share a mixture of fingerstyle banjo duets, songs they like, and arrangements of American tunes.

Rob and Michelle are taking tunes old and new, breathing fresh life into them and would love to share them with you. They’re available for dances, concerts, festivals, kitchens, pubs, cafes (other events/venues by arrangement!).
