A very welcome return to Grant Baynham and Hilary Spencer (Hg=Quicksilver, hence the name).   Following their impressive previous performance at Deal Folk Club there were many requests for a return visit.

In the words of Steve Ritchie of Tanglefoot:  It would be difficult to overstate the level of musical proficiency these two have achieved.  Baynham is a guitarist of spectacular ability – you find yourself looking around the stage to see where the orchestra is hiding.  Spencer’s voice is magnificent – powerful and majestic one moment, haunting and ethereal the next.  Either could easily overwhelm a lesser colleague, but each makes room for the other in a liquid ebb-and-flow that held me in delight for two hours.  Their material, whether original or borrowed, is literate, clever and varied, showcasing both their individual skill-set and their combined potency.

And every now and then one or the other would cut loose and treat us to a stunning display of firepower.  The effortless intricacy of Grant Baynham’s guitar playing is simply dazzling, while Hilary Spencer has just about the best voice I’ve ever heard anywhere, period.
