The family band consists of Liz, (vocals), Paul, (vocals and duet concertina), Amy (vocals) and Gavin (guitar / cittern and vocals)

We perform a range of traditional material together with more modern offerings in a very traditional style. Our songs are drawn either from extensive research into the tradition or spring from Gavin's or Paul's ever-fertile pens.

Many of our songs are now to be found in the repertoires of some very well-known performers both in UK as well as further afield  

We can perform either as a quartet (The Davenport Family) or as seperate duos;  'Paul & Liz Davenport' or 'Amy & 'Gavin Davenport'

The Davenport Family are available for bookings at Folk Clubs and Festivals in 2020.
