Mick Sands is a fine singer and flute player from the North East of England. He was born into a very musical family, so started his apprenticeship in the crib, his father being well known throughout the North East as a fine singer. Soon with his brother and sister he formed an accapella group that was very popular locally around Durham and Newcastle, performing with scallywags of the calibre of Boys of the Lough, 5 Hand Reel, Champion String and Eddie & Finbarr Furey. In recent years, Mick has concentrated his multi talents in theatre work, specialising in adapting medieval and ethnic vocal music for use in classical plays. He began composing original material which he continues today, working with Sir Peter Hall's Company, The Royal Shakespeare Company and the Royal National Theatre. In 2002 he was the recipient of the prestigious Christopher Walken Award for Music in the Theatre. Mick has been involved in many award wining productions in the West End. Recently he has composed and performed music for a major TV film, Tantalus: Behind the Mask, which has been nominated for an Emmy. Despite all this brilliant work he has continued to be a stalwart of the London Irish session scene and has found time to complete this, his debut album. All his musical friends can now share his talents with a broader audience, but the one question remains, "Why did it take so long Mick"? Clive Carroll is a young member of the guitar maestro club whose fine playing and compositions have seen him establish himself at the forefront of the next generation of British guitar wizards. His musical contribution to Mick's music is much more that an accompanist, his total commitment to the project has led to this pair forming a musical duet which they want to take to a broader audience, as a working duo
