James Hickman and Dan Cassidy in Concert

Event information

The duo was formed in 2008, beginning with several successful local shows in James' hometown of Shrewsbury and the surrounding county of Shropshire. Their relaxed banter and unique musical style was well received and they were soon performing further afield. The following year, with the prospect of more comprehensive tours approaching, they recorded and released their debut album ‘Severn Street’, featuring arrangements of traditional songs and tunes and several of their own compositions. Their successive tours have grown steadily in size and they now perform throughout the UK, enjoying concerts from the Scottish Highlands to the Isle of Wight. Inspired by their love of traditional music from Britain and America, James and Dan continued writing together. New original material is being incorporated into their live show and will be debuted in the upcoming autumn tour. James was born in Shrewsbury, Shropshire where he was raised on a diet of folk and bluegrass music. James’ father (an avid bluegrass musician) bought him his first guitar and at the age of thirteen he started performing with him at sessions and folk clubs. Dan grew up in a musical family in Maryland, USA, gaining a solid background in music after taking up the violin on his tenth birthday. His formative years as a teenager were productive, as Dan absorbed a broad spectrum of musical styles on the violin, including classical, jazz, bluegrass, country, blues, and rock. He appears on several recordings of his sister, the late Eva Cassidy.
