Herdus is a funky, folky duo featuring Ryan Wood on fiddle and Steve Wharton on guitar, ukulele, Chinese banjo and harmonicas. We play a balanced mix of folk tunes, original songs and covers, often blending one into the other. When the occasion calls we can also adapt our set (Cumbrian material, Irish songs and festive tunes).
