Bright Season formed in 2013 bringing together the talents of singer
and guitarist Michael J Tinker, fiddle-player Ella Sprung and
accordionist Simon Dumpleton. Together they perform traditional and
self-penned songs and tunes, displaying their own individual gifts and
combining to deliver stunning arrangements and harmonies.
Included in their set are traditional ballads such as The House Carpenter, a
cappella arrangements of John Ball and the shape-note song Africa and also
tune sets drawing on influences from European folk. This is particularly brought
to the fore with Ella's Nyckelharpa. Bright Season have toured around the
country, and in addition to playing headline shows they have also supported,
among others, Martin Simpson, Fay Hield and the Hurricane Party and Josienne
Clarke & Ben Walker.
