Jimmy And Carol

Jimmy and Carol Powells - American Folk and Bluegrass is their taste generally and they sing mostly chorus songs with harmony . Carol does a little blues and Jimmy may sing anything from Ricky Skaggs to Daniel O’Donnell !!

Club Quotes

“Club stalwarts, guaranteed to get the audience singing with their bluegrass choruses”

“Two of our favourites who play mainly bluegrass and American music on guitar and double bass. Carol also has an excellent blues voice and Jimmy has a couple of mandolin CDs under his belt”

“Good friends - good up-tempo material - good harmonies”

“Highly entertaining, cracking harmonies (sweet high tenor and gutsy alto), songs ranging from foot-stomping to tear-jerking”

“A fine combination of voices and instruments - the double bass is an asset to their performances, bringing something new and refreshing - a very lively act!”

“Bluegrass without the banjo (although Allan usually provides some welcome plectrum banjo), guitar, harp, double bass and virtually all sung with a chorus to keep the regulars singing along”

“A great pair. Carol's voice can blend to almost any type of material”
