Biography text

Herts-based duo Na-Mara are described by Folk London as "elegant and skilled musicians". They perform in clubs and festivals across the UK and have in recent times performed in France and Spain, and featured in broadcasts on BBC Radio 4 as well as many local radio stations. Their music includes self-penned songs in traditional style on contemporary and historical topics; traditional songs from the British Isles; their own translations of songs from the Breton, French and Quebecois traditions, and tunes from Brittany, France and the Spanish Celtic regions of Asturias and Galicia. They are well known for their songs about the Spanish Civil War and maintain close ties with the International Brigade Memorial Trust.
