Shepherd’s Purse.

‘Shepherd’s Purse’ – Eric & Eileen Payne and Jim Preston sing folk songs in close harmony – songs with a story to tell!

Three distinctive voices that can fill the air, blending gentle, precise and delicate harmonies with songs drawn from the folk tradition, contemporary folk song and their own original and inspiring new compositions.

Rich harmonies, a wide range of songs, keen humour, and their firm belief in the value of our musical heritage, ‘Shepherd’s Purse’ have forged a unique a-cappella path and partnership that is fast gaining increasing recognition and respect.
