Danny Pedler and Rosie Butler-Hall a young folk duo, with roots based in both English and French tradition.

We are Danny Pedler and Rosie Butler-Hall, two young, dynamic musicians who formed as a duo in late 2011. Danny (Essex) plays Hurdy Gurdy and Accordion and Rosie (Wiltshire) plays five-string fiddle and sings. We play mostly English and French songs and tunes and enjoy a close relationship with the audience at our live gigs. Our music is characterised by flowing melodies, intricate harmonies and strong rhythms while keeping the flavour of the traditional style.


We were finalists of the New Roots competition in 2012 and won the Open Mic competition at Shrewsbury Festival in 2013, since then they have played at folk clubs and festivals all over the country. We released our taster album BOLD in 2015; recorded by John Dipper in Rosie's local church in Wiltshire. We are really pleased with the outcome, and hope that our listeners are too. A new studio album is well on the way!


"Energetic, yet refined, expressive but totally rooted in the groove, these two musicians effortlessly delight and compel the listener. A beautiful combination of English and French music that is superb to listen to and amazing to dance to!" - John Dipper (English Acoustic Collective, Methera, Morris Offspring and Dipper & Daniels)
