Sound Tradition









Sound Tradition is an a cappella folk foursome (David, Linda, Catherine and Moose) singing in glorious harmony, with occasional enhancements provided by Indian harmonium or the spoons. Their varied repertoire ranges from lively chorus songs to lilting ballads, and from medieval times to the modern day, but always with an ear for the English folk tradition. Hailing from East Anglia, Sound Tradition is building a reputation that has garnered bookings at clubs and festivals across the country. The historical background to the songs remains an important part of their enduring attraction. Many of the folk songs they sing include the tradition of social commentary and, of course, others are simply about drinking beer or frolicking in the hay.
