Fiddlers Elbow are: Wolfy O’Hare, Gus Wilson and Sam Martyn, from Hull.
Wolfy specialises in all manner of weird and wonderful instruments, generally of the early music variety, from stringed things such as the viola da gamba and the viola d’amore, as well as woodwind from a genuine 17th-century flute to the serpent, which is thought to originate from 16th-century France.
Gus is the guitarist, the meat on the bones, the glue that holds it all together. He’s a former member of 1970s Hull band the Crack. Who? Well, if you can’t remember them, you clearly weren’t there. Or maybe that means you were. Anyway…
Sam is the youngest and most recent addition to the band, and plays whistle and harmonium. She’s Gus’s niece, and her suggestion to call us The Band from Uncle was vetoed outright.
