About

4-piece Moonrakers (www.moonrakers.net) perform sparkling and unique arrangements of traditional British folk songs and tunes as well as their own compositions. Their multi-instrumental show comprises harp, cello, fretted instruments, whistles, and female/male vocals. Their live shows are informative, full of musical variety and suitable for all ages (“startlingly talented”, Oxford Times, "exquisite sound", BBC). Included in the show are ancient mystic ballads, beautiful lyrical tunes, and joyous chorus songs. The band’s prolific recorded output has received glowing reviews from the music press (“The real deal”, The Living Tradition; “Wonderful arrangements”, RnR Magazine; “Uplifting, sensitively crafted songs and tunes” FATEA magazine). Their music has been used for the BBC television series ‘Beyond Paradise’, Radio 4 and numerous local radio and podcast shows.

The current line-up includes Becki Luff (Celtic harp) who has played at prestigious venues such as The Wigmore Hall and The Sage; Jacqui Johnson (cellist), formerly with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and performs regularly as a soloist; Jon Bennett (bouzouki, guitar, whistles, bodhran, vocals) an award-winning songwriter and a published composer; and Sarah Fell (vocals) who has run community choirs in Oxfordshire.
