After quitting the London punk scene in the early 1980s, Bev developed an interest in traditional music and promptly sold his electric guitar and fuzzbox to explore this new musical direction. He is now a regular on the local folk circuit, playing in sessions and ceilidh bands around the county. Bevís playing combines a delicacy of touch with the driving rhythms which give Mooncoin its solid heart, a perfect compliment to the strong melodies of the band.
