Cath and Phil Tyler play Anglo-American folk music using guitar, banjo, voice and fiddle. Cath was a member of the band Cordelia's Dad when she lived in Massachusetts, USA in the 1990s. Phil, from Newcastle upon Tyne, UK, has played in various folk, rock and cèilidh bands for many years. Coming together musically through a shared love of traditional narrative song, Sacred Harp singing and sparse mountain banjo, they have performed on stages as diverse as the Royal Opera House in London, and Morden Tower on the old city walls of Newcastle. Released in 2018, The Ox and the Ax is Cath and Phil Tyler's third album. It follows The Hind Wheels of Bad Luck (No-Fi, 2010) and Dumb Supper (No-Fi, 2008).
