Nick Jones & Alice Kirby have been playing together since the late 1990s, and through their love of English music and the Playford repertoire have performed for dances throughout the Midlands and beyond.

Currently two-thirds of the Knitter’s Jig ceilidh band, they still play as a duo and are regularly seen around the English festival session scene.

Alice played with her parents’ dance band in her native Yorkshire for many years, and has played and danced for morris and rapper teams. Nick has played for morris and barn dances since the late 80s. The duo explore interpretations of the 18th-century tunes upon which much of their repertoire is based.

Their first CD, No-Body’s Jigg, was recorded in 2003 and is presented here in a remastered release plus two bonus tracks.
