About Kevin Dempsey and Jacqui McShee

Jacqui McShee and Kevin Dempsey started working together when he was invited to play with Pentangle at the New Forest Folk Festival in July 2017. After this success they went on to the concert held in homage to Bert Jansch at Queens Hall, Edinburgh in August of the same year.

 They got on well and so decided to play some gigs as a duo, working in Italy in May and August 2018, and also as sup- port for Steeleye Span in Liverpool dur- ing their autumn tour. More gigs in the UK and abroad are planned for 2019 along with a CD of new material.
