Based in the South East of England,  Open Water bring a fresh approach to acoustic music.  Joanne Doolan’s unique vocals emanate from her Welsh musical roots.  Guitars and other stringed instruments are played by Jeff Alexander and Richard Rozze.  Jeff’s influences come from traditions as varied as the Renaissance lute and flamenco guitar.  Richard’s influences stem from rock, blues and jazz traditions.

With refined vocal harmonies, Open Water create original music, taking folk music in new directions.  The trio have recorded and performed with double bassists Alex Keen and Dave Whitford.

”Cracking they sound, magic. Very impressed by them indeed.” Doug Welch BBC Radio Kent Folk Show
