Twos Company

Trad. folk: vocals/cello/guitar/mandolins/whistles

Two’s Company – husband and wife duo Ted and Penny perform Celtic and traditional folk songs, arranged for voice, cello, guitar, mandolin, various folk whistles and a variety of other folk instruments.

For many years Ted was a professional cellist. He played professionally with many of the London orchestras, and was principal cellist at the London Palladium for several years. Since moving to Norfolk, he taught cello at many schools across the county before his retirement.

Penny is the singer, a classically-trained contralto. She also plays a number of different instruments – guitar, an assortment of mandolins, mandola, ukulele, banjo-uke, as well as various folk whistles – penny whistle, low whistle and several others in between.

For some years Ted and Penny performed with a pianist as Three’s Company, where their repertoire included songs from stage and screen, Great American Songbook etc. When their pianist retired Three’s Company became Two’s Company, diversifying to perform traditional music covering a period of 800 years or more. They perform across Norfolk and Suffolk, playing and singing, but also talking about and demonstrating their various instruments, many of which are unfamiliar to audiences.
