Foley And Smedley
Thu 2 Apr 2020
In 2017 long-standing colleagues and friends David Foley & Jack Smedley found themselves with an abundance of brand new, un-played music. Much of this music was created during the writing process of the three critically acclaimed albums they have released with RURA, an award-winning Scottish folk act of which they are founding members.
Since meeting in 2008, Foley & Smedley have gone on to share stages across the globe with RURA and have performed as a duo at countless events throughout the UK.
Having each performed with some of the biggest names in the folk scene and recorded with a plethora of award winning artists, the pair are sought after musicians in their own right.
Foley & Smedley officially joined forces in 2018 for a performance at the world famous Celtic Connections festival.The pair met in Glasgow while studying at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and having performed and recorded with some of the biggest names in the folk scene today, are sought after musicians in their own right. David, an award winning multi-instrumentalist grew up in and around the Irish music scene in Glasgow and Jack, originally from Cullen, was steeped in traditional fiddle music from the North-East and Highlands as a youngster.
