“Kindred Spirit” Duo featuring Elaine with Phil Martin

In this line up, we have Elaine Samuels'  "haunting and beautiful" vocals and guitar playing and the wonderful Phil Martin,
singing great backing harmonies and playing electric violin, electric guitar and viola.

Elaine has been featured on TV and radio as well as at festivals such as Glastonbury and Guildford and Phil is a melodic
improviser and also has a great voice performing as a lead vocalist in some of his many other bands.

The Kindred Spirit duo of Elaine and Phil perform a powerful live set of classic pop / rock and contemporary folk
covers like Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here", Kink's "Waterloo Sunset", Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams", 
Lindisfarne's "Lady Eleanor" and songs from Crowded House, Simon and Garfunkel, Travis and Coldplay, for example.
They also perform foot-stomping celtic jigs  reels and one or two  “perceptive and intriguing” original numbers.
More examples are given in the audio clips below. And you can:-
