Andy Turner &
Mat Green

Mat and Andy are both founder members of Magpie Lane providing the instrumental drive at the heart of the band's dance music repertoire.

Mat was born and bred in Bampton in Oxfordshire, and has been dancing and playing for the morris for over 40 years. He has developed a unique, utterly danceable, quintessentially English fiddle style. As well as playing in Magpie Lane, he was a member of the justly popular ceilidh band, the Woodpecker Band.

Andy also has many years' experience playing dance music, with Polkabilly, Geckoes and most recently The Oxford NAGS. He has a punchy, rhythmic concertina style, but is also able to play in a slower, smoother style to accompany his own fine singing.

Together, Mat and Andy play mainly traditional English dance tunes. They specialise in little-known tunes from eighteenth and nineteenth century village musicians' tunebooks, but essentially will play any good dance tune from almost anywhere!

The tunes are interspersed with songs - again, mainly from English traditional sources.
