Mic & Adrian
Performing a highly eclectic range of folk style acoustic arrangements of songs from traditional, and contemporary sources plus more than a few of their own compositions all of which are intricately sensitive, thoughtful and pleasing and presented with deft skill and respectful consideration.
Friends for many years this is a merging of two fine talents, each one complimenting the other to offer music of such vitality and vigour, such strength and passion, yet also including material of such delicacy and sweetness, that it has won them the hearts of those already fortunate enough to have heard them.
Mic McCreadie began his singing career in the late Sixties, learning and honing his craft from the many influences that abounded during the big Folk Revival of that time. Advised and encouraged by many of the major artists on the British Folk Club Scene of the 1970s he has enjoyed a long association as a Resident Artist with most of the major Folk Music Clubs in Cornwall, performed regularly at all the major Folk Festivals, including the Main Stage at the world renowned Cambridge Folk Festival! He has also toured in Europe, earning himself a grand reputation as a fine guitarist, singer and performer, song-writer/arranger and interpreter of both traditional and contemporary music. He has fronted several rock and R&B bands: Creepin’ Jane, Sensible Shoes, Big Dick & The Deviants and is now focussing more on acoustic music.
It was in the 60s/70s melting pot of the British Folk Blues guitar scene that guitarist/composer and song-writer Adrian O’Reilly developed his own lyrical style. It has taken him to festival concert and club stages around Europe and the UK. Over forty years after they had first met, the great Jazz/Blues/Art Critic/Musician (and a major influence on Van Morrison), 90 year old Solly Lipsitz remembered, ‘Adrian and I gave a talk: “Can white men play the Blues?” He proved they can. A great player! Where is he these days? Cornwall! Good for him! The guitar has many hidden voices and he continues his lifelong search for them.’
