Hailing from Hampshire in southern England, Provincial's sound is pooled from the backgrounds of three very different individuals. From their improv beginnings, the group's songs have gradually coalesced into melancholic, explicitly English pop songs, becoming part of the modern English folk music lineage of Vaughan Williams, Incredible String Band, Talk Talk and These New Puritans, whilst also evoking the hushed reverence of Stars of the Lid, and Low.

There is a spirit in her playing which will captivate you.
Julie Anne McCambridge
The uncanny voice of Julie Anne McCambridge is a force of nature. Not so much the leaf-cutter ants and acorn weevils bit of nature. The big stuff. Lions. Wild boar. The mighty wildebeest. She is a powerful and innovative singer-songwriter who can floor an audience with a whisper and a holler. Website.
Strayaway Child is; Maggie Casey (whistles, flute, fiddle and singing) and Johnny B (mandola, mountain dulcimer and singing). They met in the folk session in the greatly missed Grosvenor in Brixton. They discovered that they lived in the same street so it was inevitable that they play more music together. South London musicians for many years, Maggie plays in sessions, folk clubs and the odd ceilidh, and Johnny is a long-standing member of The No Frills Band. Website.
