A pair of local Folk Festival Favourites have received critical acclaim on the release of their debut album.

During a year of playing at major concerts, tours and festivals Cole Stacey and Joseph O’Keefe somehow managed to squeeze in the time to write and produce ‘On Hire’.

The Sidmouth festival regulars began their collaboration inbetween gigs in May, and has been receiving airplay on BBC 6 Music and glowing reviews from the music press.

Cole is from Awliscombe and Joseph from Talaton, and the pair draw on their Devonshire acoustic routes to blend Parisian café violins and gypsy jazz guitar.

After recording some of the violin near Sidmouth they decided to name one of the tracks on ‘On Hire’ after Dukes’ Hotel, having both enjoyed five successful years playing at the venue.

They said: “It’s been an amazing project to work on for us, and we’ve been humbled by everyone’s response and support.”

With a major nationwide tour booked for next spring the duo are currently focusing on shows in Europe, as they build up a following in Paris where they have been working new material for their next album.

But for now their debut is available from www.colestacey.net, before being released in the shops next year.
