Dipper Malkin are a captivating duo, who are rapidly earning a reputation for elevating traditional music to new heights of sturdy beauty and sophistication. Their highly-anticipated debut release,

Tricks of the Trade, was included in The Sunday Times Top 10 Folk/Roots albums of 2017.

Dipper Malkin is the “potent combination” (Folk Radio UK) of two musicians that have spent their careers to date involved in groundbreaking projects. John Dipper (viola d’amore) was one third of The English Acoustic

Collective alongside Chris Wood and Robert Harbron and currently works with string quartet Methera, The Emily Askew Band and Alma, while Dave Malkin (guitar, voice) was a founding member of trio Tandem, stylishly

combining traditionally informed compositions with live electronics.

“It’s important to us both that we look outwards for inspiration. We aim to present work on a par with contemporary classical music in terms of its intrinsic artistic value, produced to the standard of a big-budget

release, as thrilling and accurately executed as improvised jazz, but most importantly rooted in our tradition.”  Photo Credit Radek Bayek
