Paul Downes, guitarist par excellence, cut his teeth performing with The Arizona Smoke Review and Downes & Beer. “ evening that left the audience feeling that the world was a lot better than when they came in”  - Pete Arnold, Jurassic Folk

The new album Won’t You Come Away has garnered brilliant reviews, including 4-star responses from Uncut & R2 Rock ‘n’ Reel.

"Deep-rooted, hearty folk song…. divinely pure voice" - Uncut ****

"... authoritatively considered, with the abundant expressive sincerity which distinguishes Maggie's performances….central to the texture is the unflinchingly expert guitar of Paul Downes" - fRoots
