Three Pressed Men

Scythe, Sword and Anchor front cover“A rare joy” – John Kirkpatrick

Firmly rooted in the English tradition, Three Pressed Men perform wonders with voices, hammer dulcimer, guitar, accordions, harmonica … and lots of concertinas! Our music embraces many moods  and styles – striking a cappella harmonies, sensitive ballads, lively dance music and rousing choruses.

“Three of English folk music’s hidden talents! These chaps do great things with the tradition. They are singers and instrumentalists, composers and arrangers of rare talent. Variety is the spice of life, and their performances at folk clubs and festivals are always praised for the range of styles and sounds they present. Perhaps their most distinctive feature is their use of multiple concertinas. This is not a novelty band, though!”
