Angelcynn are Rex and Patrick, a father and son duo from Worcestershire, who are regular Open Door visitors. See the Extravaganza 10 page for more information!

Angelcynn is Old English for "English Folk" which is who they are and what they perform. Patrick Waldron is one of England's rising young squeezebox stars and has already appeared at Worcester's Swan Theatre, as well as being a regular session player in Worcestershire. Rex plays guitar, bouzouki and ukelele, and provides the vocals. Their music ranges from traditional morris dance tunes to contempory material and includes original songs composed in collaboration with lyricist Alan Heywood. Their first CD is now out - be sure to get your copy!
