Martina Schwarz and Sally Davies met in 2000 while providing the music for a touring theatre production and formed the duo Bow & Bellows soon after. Since then they have had a steady stream of engagements in a wide variety of venues, ranging from cafes, folk clubs, embassies and festivals to the National Theatre Foyer and the Purcell Room, as well as private functions.
They play and sing their own compelling arrangements of Klezmer, Balkan and Gypsy music with occasional sorties to savour the musical traditions of other countries.
