Martin & Shan Graebe

Martin & Shan sing traditional songs together, mostly unaccompanied and in harmony. Their repertoire is based mainly on the songs of southern England, particularly those found by the Devonshire folk song collector, Sabine Baring-Gould, whose life and work Martin has been studying for several years. Shan is also well known for the workshops that she leads on aspects of voice use and care. Martin’s book As I Walked Out, Sabine Baring-Gould and the Search for the Folk Songs of Devon and Cornwall (Signal Books, 2017) has received both the Katharine Briggs Folklore Award and the R. G Hoskins Prize.
