Pamela Ward (vocals) and Paul Cherrington (fingerstyle guitar)

Pamela Ward and Paul Cherrington present a mixture of music from traditional and contemporary folk to ragtime and blues. They started their musical careers in 1987 after winning the Brewhouse music prize in a U.K. folkfinder competition. This resulted in their first album 'Hand of Fate'.

Pam and Paul have been featured session artists with recordings at BBC Pebble Mill for late night shows Nightride and The Early Show on Radio 2, and have toured extensively throughout the U.K. They have also performed over 500 concerts on behalf of "Music In Hospitals" playing in hospitals, day centres, hospices and care homes from St Ives in Cornwall to Berwick upon Tweed, from Jersey to Northern Ireland.

Pam has worked as a session singer on a wide variety of projects. These include commissions from Denmark and the recording of 14 tracks for the album 'Songs Of The British Islands' which was commissioned by the British embassy in Japan. One of the recordings on her solo album 'Just An Old Fashioned Girl' reached No.1 in America on the CM Radio (Celtic Music) charts.

Her versatile, mature and melodic voice is equally suited to pure and haunting traditional songs as it is to the more gutsy blues style of Bessie Smith as she takes the audience through the gamut of emotions; from cheeky humour to passion and pathos. Paul's accomplished guitar playing acts as the perfect foil to Pam's voice whilst never detracting from the vocals.
