Alex Seel is a singer-songwriter and guitarist with roots in folk & blues. We last saw him in February 2020, and we look forward to welcoming back to the stage.
Music has led Alex from Devon to London to Ireland and back to London again. Through his wanderings, Alex has picked up a beautifully crafted rootsy song-writing style with thought-provoking lyrics and a gift for acoustic guitar finger-picking. He has a growing reputation as a solo performer. His most recent release is the album ‘Spell On A Tin Drum’. This and previous releases have been well received by press and radio.
The album, written partly in a caravan on the west coast of Ireland and mostly recorded in London, has retained a raw emotional feel and with it gained new heights of songwriting within Seel’s unique repertoire.
Pip Collings and Paul Vile have been performing together since the late 80s. Paul is no stranger to TwickFolk audiences – our longest-serving volunteer is also the sound engineer, floor-spotter and until recently was the M.C, not to mention his gigs with John Prosser. Pip has appeared on the TwickFolk stage a few times, the most recent being with Paul at our 40th Anniversary bash.
This renewed activity coincides with a new album – Diaries released in March this year.
