Blackwater is an accomplished and justly well-respected duo (Ruth and Tony Dargan), based in the Wakefield area of West Yorkshire; their trademark sound is a gentle, enchanting and highly polished blend of two acoustic guitars and two voices, their partnership demonstrating an almost uncanny togetherness of musical spirit.  The tasteful, intricately woven, impeccably managed guitar work is at once almost spontaneously conceived and yet carefully rehearsed, delicately dovetailed, ringing and mellifluous; accomplished yet unassuming; never obtrusive and – importantly, wholly supportive of the songs, while the vocal work is light-textured, attractive, easy on the ear and similarly even-toned, the part sharing both well-thought-out and convincing (both Ruth and Tony equally capable of taking the lead).
