In 1993, three blokes from South Yorkshire and Derbyshire, with a name like a firm of solicitors, released an album of acappella songs full of social comment and (in the words of Folk Roots) 'harmonies you could chew.'

They were, of course, Coope Boyes and Simpson, and the album was Funny Old World. Q Magazine named it as their Roots Album of the Year in 1994.

Now, twenty four years later, with a career that has encompassed at least a dozen albums, numerous tours and festival appearances, as well as a Folk Awards nomination, Coope, Boyes and Simpson have released what will be their final studio album.
Coda is be a collection of songs, mainly self-penned or drawn from the tradition, covering issues such as refugees, Iraq and climate change. With an anger undimmed, Coope, Boyes and Simpson are returning to their roots and completing the circle that started with Funny Old World.

2017 will see Coope, Boyes and Simpson embark on their farewell tour at venues throughout the UK and their final festival appearances as a trio. This will be a celebration of their career, and will feature material from across their entire repertoire.
