Sedbuskers, sometimes known as the Bullenbush Band duo, are singer songwriters Ian and Sue Bembridge. The Lady in the Lake is their first album as the Sedbuskers, with the pair contributing to Bullenbush Band albums since 1987 and Ian launching a solo album in 2006.
Sue is a talented singer who provides accompaniment on piano accordion, a variety of recorders and guitar. Ian is an accomplished guitarist, a singer with a broad sense of humour, who also plays mandocello, mandolin and bass guitar. Sedbuskers have performed across the UK, from the ‘Old Profanity Showboat’ in Bristol Harbour to the main stage for the launch of the ‘Tour de France 2014’ in Hawes, North Yorkshire, with the occasional foray overseas. They played support to Peter Skellern and Jake Thackray, and are equally at home in small folk clubs or performing on open air festival stages.
“We go out to entertain, and hopefully people enjoy what we have to offer. If we make them smile and they want to come and see us again, that’s even better!”
Sedbuskers have been influenced by numerous folk and rock musicians over the years, writing songs that tell stories or try to make a point.
