BC studio EDITED-19

“Jonny has a splendid rock voice with a breath-taking range & Liam is inspiring on acoustic guitars… BarlowCree has attitude by the shedfull” – FolkWales.org

BarlowCree – or BC – is the musical face of multi-instrumentalist Liam Millinship and vocalist Jonny Matthew.

BC is a South Wales based folk-acoustic duo performing original material and adaptations of traditional and contemporary folk songs.

“Barlowcree… their original songs are powerful and their covers are… well, original.”

Genevieve Tudor – BBC Radio

BarlowCree’s magnetic stage presence, coupled with craftsman-like song writing is captivating audiences on both the club and festival scenes. BC’s mix of traditional and self-penned work is receiving critical acclaim in the print and online media.

“…the positive and heartfelt nature of the duo’s lyrics is … matched by a strong melodic content, often with a strong Show Of Hands feel to boot, so on this showing BarlowCree can be judged an act to watch out for…”

  1. Hi Wendy.
    The name comes from the slang for ‘ ‘safe place’ during a game of ‘tag’ or ‘tig’. In South Wales (Liam) we call this place ‘cree’ and in Yorkshire(Jonny) they call it ‘barlow’. Hence, BarlowCree.
