Pad the Hoof

A duet with harmony vocals, clawhammer banjo and acoustic guitar

Pad the Hoof is an acoustic duet playing Old Time American folk songs, original compositions and modern songs we think will be around for a long time to come.


Graeme Parry - Vocals, Banjo, Guitar and Harmonica

Lyn Parkinson - Vocals and Guitar

Pad the Hoof met while Lyn was studying for her phD and Graeme was working as a technician at the University of Nottingham. They played in local folk music sessions and soon began to meet up and sing harmonies together. After a while they began to work on a shared vision of an acoustic folk duet based on the songs from the Old Time American Folk Music repertoire and modern songs they felt would stand the test of time. They have also both brought original compositions to the mix.
