Much-toured 4-piece band, Moonrakers (Celtic harp, fiddle, stringed instruments, whistles, female/male vocals) pride themselves on having brought traditional and contemporary folk music to new audiences in village halls, churches, arts centres and festivals across the south of England for many years. The band comprises multi-instrumentalist and award-winning songwriter Jon Bennett, fiddle player Liz van Santen, Sarah Fell on vocals and harpist Eleanor Dunsdon.
With songs and tunes from the UK and Ireland as well as their own compositions, they've been described as "startlingly talented" (Oxford Times) with five albums of "exquisite music" (BBC) and "truly wonderful" (Wycombe Festival) performances. 2018 saw the launch of their new album 'Tides' which has received glowing reviews in the music press; this year they're also appearing at Towersey Festival and Bukfest2018.
