The Drystones are two twenty-one year olds from Somerset playing a lively mix of their own interpretations of traditional folk tunes and original compositions. Very accomplished on violin, guitar and whistle at Glastonbury Festival 2013 they were Steve Lamacq's "recommendation of the day". For just two people they make a lot of sound!
