We are the St Albans based folk duo, na-mara - Paul McNamara (Guitar and vocals) and Rob Garcia (Guitar, mandolin and mandola) – performing songs and tunes from the British Isles, Brittany, France, Quebec, Asturias and Galicia, as well as self-penned songs in traditional style. We have performed in folk clubs throughout the South East and beyond and, in addition to many 'guest/headliner' bookings, have supported Cara Dillon, Emily Smith, Vin Garbutt, The Tannahill Weavers and many others. We have performed regularly at the Club Tent at the Cambridge Folk Festival, as well as many summer folk festivals. We are close friends of the International Brigade Memorial Trust and have performed our self-penned songs about the Spanish Civil War at numerous events to remember the commitment of British fighters to the International Brigade in that conflict in the 1930s. Our album, 'The Bite', released in November 2010, has received excellent reviews from a host of local and national folk magazines and been played on folk music programmes across the UK.
