Phil Underwood and Denise Dryburgh are DryWood, a husband and wife duo singing lively and heartfelt original and traditional songs. They operate a pair of traditional canal boats and their songs celebrate the heritage of the English Canals, the English Folk Tradition, spiced up with a pinch of Americana, Blues and Cajun. DryWood also present their original lively show about the history of the canals – Boat Horse.

Phil Underwood is a highly experienced International award winning musician with many CD, TV and stage credits to his name. He trained for the stage with the National Theatre’s War Horse production and also appeared at Wembley with musician and comedian Bill Bailey.

Denise Dryburgh started singing as a teenager in a successful all girl group DeLorelei and subsequently made her name on the folk circuit as a fine and powerful folk singer and session leader. She toured with harmony group The Morning After.
