The Dollymopps sing songs in harmony from the folk tradition of Southern England – and, in particular, songs collected from their native Isle of Wight.
They have two recent CD releases – “Long Songs” (Rattletrap Records) and “Wight Cockade” (Wildgoose Records) – which have garnered much critical acclaim.
“Transplant The Watersons or The Copper Family to the Isle of Wight and you’ve got the (mostly) unaccompanied style of The Dollymopps. This is cupped hand-to-the-ear three-part harmony singing stripped to its glorious basics.”(Sing Out! USA).
“Fierce harmonies, strong, dynamic voices and flawless storytelling… The Dollymopps’ second studio release sees the group continue to herald the beauty and exquisite nature of the folk tradition of the South of England.” (Bright Young Folk).
“The Dollymopps are doing a grand job exposing little-known material from the Isle of Wight. Wight Cockade is another excellent example of their pioneering work.” (R2 – Rock’n’Reel)
