Dipper Malkin are rapidly earning a reputation for elevating traditional music to new heights of sturdy beauty and sophistication. The ‘potent combination’ (Folk Radio UK) of John Dipper’s unusual, 14-string, viola d’amore, and Dave Malkin’s finely honed accompaniments and unique voice have afforded them with glowing praise for their debut album.


Sunday Times 'Best 100 Albums of 2017'
"John Dipper's duets with the guitarist Dave Malkin are perfectly judged, the latter's occasional unassuming vocals adding just the right measure of grit. Exquisite..."
- The Sunday Times


“Following the contours of tunes with skill and precision, these two highly talented musicians frame traditional music in all its technicoloured glory. There aren’t many who can sculpt and carve music and song in this way. Moving and thrilling…”
Verity Sharp - Late Junction, BBC Radio 3


"The combination of the viola’s rich, sonorous tones, and Dave Malkin’s guitar and voice is a winner. On ‘King Storm’, the pair hit on an unusual ambient soundscape, starting simply with Malkin’s dark vocals set against sparse viola harmonics, before a glorious duet ensues."
- Acoustic Magazine


"Beyond traditional folk... refined classical-tinged sophistication and as exciting as the free form nature of jazz yet rooted in the traditional."
- Fatea Magazine


“There is a rich, luxurious feel to the many beautiful instrumental tunes on this debut.”
★★★★
- Songlines Magazine
