Will & Pippa Noble

Yorkshire stonemason and dry stone waller Will Noble learnt his first song whilst on the family farm as a boy. He later attended shepherds’ meets, after-hunt sings and traditional local pub carol sessions. His music which is drawn from the Pennine area of SW Yorkshire has taken him around the UK and North America. Over 40 years of performance, Will added many fine songs from elsewhere to his repertoire and is acknowledged as a true representative of the English singing tradition. He is joined by Pippa, whose singing reflects her native County Durham as well as France, Ireland and further afield. Sometimes accompanied, sometimes contemporary and very occasional singer songwriter, she provides the nomadic counterpoint to Will’s grounded Yorkshire heritage.
