The Bara Bara Band is a London-based folk quartet playing a mix of their own songs, traditional British folk songs and old time American tunes. Ruth Jacob – banjo, guitar, vocals, harmonica, tin whistle Rupert Browne – guitar, vocals
Will Dobson – cajon, percussion Boris Ming – fiddle, keyboards, vocals Hailing from the old mining community of Church Gresley, South Derbyshire, Ruth Jacob started The Bara Bara Band after the split of legendary female folk duo The Lorcas. She joined forces with Rupert Browne of Juniper Leaf fame and the pair started writing songs together.
They are accompanied by Boris Ming (of Juniper Leaf and The Precious Mings) on fiddle and Will Dobson on percussion. Rupert and Ruth also run the monthly folk club TOOTING FOLK, which has become a firm favourite on the London folk scene.
