We are suntrap


Suntrap are a 4 piece folk-inspired group with beautiful entrancing vocal harmonies on original, contemporary and traditional songs.

Suntrap are Sara Byers, Mary Wilson, John Sandall and Sue Graves.

A new, their 5th CD, Northern Lights, will be released in September 2019.

Sara and Mary began singing together after meeting at Cecil Sharp House in 1996. The following year they made their first demo at Dave Pegg's Woodwork Studios and Suntrap have gone on to make four highly regarded CDs, the most recent of these released on Fellside Recordings. Sue, known as the ‘Surrey Nightingale’ is a stunning addition to Suntrap’s powerful vocal harmony sound. John, a virtuosic, irrepressible fiddler completes the quartet.

Suntrap have played all over the UK and Europe at major folk festivals, folk clubs and art centres. The band have been privileged to open Cambridge and Warwick Folk Festivals.
