Bancroft & Lyne

This transatlantic duo delivers a dynamic, entertaining and intimate interpretation of beautiful songs. Sophie Bancroft’s voice and effortless guitar is gorgeous over Tom Lyne’s virtuoso bass. Their storytelling and musicality is presented through a carefully chosen repertoire featuring original contemporary jazz-based songs alongside reimagined classic jazz standards and covers of songs by the likes of Tom Waits, Joni Mitchell and Rickie Lee Jones. Heralded as a ‘must see’ act at a recent Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival in New York the duo have performed at many venues and festivals around the UK, Europe and North America.

We are delighted to be part of the Scotland On Tour 2022 intiative.
