Pauline Vallance is a delightful Scottish singer and harpist with a great sense of humour. As she says:
“I am a singer/songwriter and clarsach player from Ayrshire. I love to explore different styles and genres and write songs about subjects as diverse as the beauty of the Northumberland coastline to the disaster of dogs eating mobile phones!
A 'typical' gig, if there is such a thing, will consist of a variety of my own songs, some folk songs, particularly songs by Burns and Tannahill and possibly some unexpected rock covers. During Lockdown, I have been experimenting with Songs to the Tune of Another - and I think they're here to stay!”
Avril McCall is a versatile singer who has performed over the years in folk clubs throughout Yorkshire and the North East. Her repertoire is an eclectic mix of folk, blues and contemporary songs. She is also a crucial part of the Toft House Team and her warmth and humour shine on every occasion. We love her singing too!
