With strong West Country roots, Nick Wyke & Becki Driscoll are stunning fiddle players and composers whose combined skills and musicianship forge a joyful collision of English traditional music and contemporary bowed strings.

Their unique sound blends melodic, emotive violin and viola with driving fiddle chords and powerful vocals interspersed with anecdotes of adventures and stories from the road.


We are fiddle players, singers and composers based in North Devon. We are available to play for concerts as a duo or as a trio featuring James Budden on double bass. We also offer music for weddings - please get in touch to discuss your event!

We are both experienced music workshop leaders and offer workshops for festivals and specialist courses, in fiddle playing or mixed instrument groups.Trio Photo

 Environmental statement

We have taken the decision with “The Songs Of Edward Capern” not to have the albums shrink-wrapped to avoid unneccesary plastic going to landfill. The case is a cardboard-only digifile and can be composted at the end of its life. The CD itself is not easily recyclable (sorry), but there are a few places they can be reprocessed.
Your CD will be shipped to you in recycled and compostable packaging.
If you’re not too worried about having a hard-copy CD, you can always download the album in digital format from Bandcamp or iTunes. We’ll provide access for all the album artwork on Bandcamp, if you want to have all the lyrics and cover art on your device. iTunes only provides cover art.
Our back catalogue of CDs comes wrapped in various formats. When we need to refresh our stocks, we will update production methods to remain as environmentally sensitive as possible, and let you know the details!
