About the Band
The Lucky 12 are:
Duncan Whitehurst (guitar and vocals)
Rebecca Whitehurst (violin, vocals and piano-accordion)
Jack Deere-Jones (double bass)
Harry Whitehurst (cajon).
Duncan and Rebecca started out as a duo over 30 years ago and were well-established on folk scene in Wales and the south-west of England when they formed the almost-legendary folk-rock band The Rainkings. The Lucky 12 sees them return to their acoustic roots following Duncan’s long absence from the music scene after being diagnosed with Parkinsons. The good news is they’re back – Duncan has worked out how to play guitar again and produced a remarkable set of new songs that are rooted in Tenby and Pembrokeshire life.
Their new album, Into the Light, is a true labour of love, fashioned out of adversity and brought to life by Owain Fleetwood-Jenkins at the wonderfully retro Studiowz in West Wales.
“The musicianship is superb, and the songs so memorable you’ll have the record on constant repeat…I love it.” (BB.Skone Western Telegraph)
