Ann Mathews and Dave Reader


Dave, formerly of the Laners and Ann formerly of Priory Hard (Southampton), met at the Banbury festival in October 2001, Both singer song writers on their own accounts they have now joined together as a duo and song writing team.

Delighting in the fact that their voices and songwriting abilities blend as well as their romantic inclinations! (Now very happily married - ask to see the wedding pics!) Their set will be largely self penned songs covering a wide range of styles . The fact that they are both accomplished harmony singers adds interest to their arrangements. They sing unaccompanied and with guitars. Dave also plays the Mandola and Mandolin and Ann the fiddle. Ann’s songs are already well known in sing-arounds and clubs. Dave’s humorous compositions are very popular and his songs of political comment can be thought provoking.
