An acoustic rock, soul, funk and blues duo brought the house down as part of their Sidmouth Folk Week performance.
Marnie, which is made up of Marnie and Jon Maybey, performed at The Anchor Garden on Friday, as part of the annual event.
The event was attended by several hundred people who all enjoyed spine tingling vocals, driving guitar riffs and live loops.
Marnie provided the vocals, played a rhythm and a 12 string guitar as well as the percussion while Jon was on lead guitar, the mandolin and backup vocals.
The pair owned the stage from the onset wowing audiences with an array of covers and original songs that had everybody’s feet tapping and heads nodding.
