About Rosie & Nigel (aka The Go Twos)
Rosie McDonald & Nigel Lever are both well established in the festival scene, having played in numerous bands and line ups, apart and together. It's the music they play together that shines with an intimate and heartfelt intensity, shimmering in the ether between performer and listener. They draw upon the rhythmic and melodic lines that weave through Australian, Irish, Scottish, English, and American folk traditions, as well as presenting original material which they are currently recording for their debut CD. Their music is a joyful antidote to current hard times.

Nigel (Willing Ponies, Acoustic Shock, The Three Jimmies, Three Marketeers, Faraway eyes, Karen Lynne band, Mothers of the Nation band) on vocals, mandolin, flatpick acoustic guitar and octave mandolin.
