Traditional and contemporary folk
lead singer and guitarist
Jason started life in the Woodcuts as a bass player
way back when the band was less folk and more punk.
With the departure of the orignal guitarist, Jason
led the way with a distinctly more folk flavour leaving
the bass behind and returning to the acoustic guitar.
Louisa Wansborough (Biggs)
Violin, vocals, tin whistle and percussion
Louisa started with the Woodcuts as an ocasional guest violinist, but being the lead singer's little sister
it wasn't long before the Woodcuts became a regular 3-piece.
Although a classically trained violinist, she had a taste for folk music from an early age. This can probably be attributed to a family holiday in Scotland where she heard her first folk band - the McCalmans, in a very rainy Oban.
