"Somewhere between Balintore on Scotland’s North East coast and Sweden there is probably a wee star twinkling and radiating an abundance of creative warmth and affection that manifests itself in the musical collaboration of John Mitchell & Sofie Jonsson."
David Shannon, Scots Music
Hello and welcome to our website!
We are so happy to have been nominated in the "best live music experience" category at the Swedish Dalecarlia Music Awards 2016! Although we didn't win (congratulations to Stiko Per Larsson!), it was fantastic to be nominated, since playing live is so important to us, and meeting every audience is so special..... Thank you, all the voters!
You can watch the gala here - our performance is at 44:30:
And, in January we played the Folk at Heart festival in Örebro and were super happy to be chosen one of three 2016 ambassadors for the festival! Thank you so much, Folk at Heart!
We also have a new free download for you! It's an album that John recorded with our friend Cindy Warner in Jamestown, Virginia, in 2004, called Homeland Insecurity. It's a folk music album featuring Cindy on beautiful vocals and bodhran. Click on the link to download the album for free! However, we would be really happy if you would choose to leave a tip, because Cindy is battling cancer at the moment and all money will go towards her treatment! Thank you so much! <3
Thanks so much for visiting, and take care!
John & Sofie xx
