Conservative Club 13.15 & Jolly Postie 14.45
The duo that is “Cambridge and Walker” is the result of a mutual interest in traditional songs, especially harmony singing, arising from individual performances at Blackfen Folk Club. David (Cambridge) sings and plays guitar/guzouki and has been building a reputation as a singer/guitarist in Cambridge and the surrounding area- his love of the guitar is such that he spends a good deal of his time building them. Jenna (Walker) sings and plays melodeon/piano accordion and has been singing in Cambridge for many years- she has just completed a Masters in Traditional Folk Music. During the festival season of 2016, David and Jenna decided to actually try singing as a duo- they went public in that autumn at Blackfen, Cambridge and Bury folk clubs and the responses of friends and audiences convinced them to carry on. Since then they have appeared on local radio (Cambridge 105; West Norfolk Radio) and played at various folk clubs in East Anglia, with headline appearances at Cambridge, Blackfen (forthcoming), Great Bardfield, Hadleigh (forthcoming), Milkmaid (Bury StE), Royston, Thetford and White Horse (Hertford) Folk Clubs. They have played at the City Roots and Speakout events in Cambridge, and during the festival seasons of 2017 and 2018, “Cambridge and Walker” were invited to play at Blackfen Folk Clubs’ Folk Day concerts, and at Bury, Ely and Cambridge Folk Festivals.
