The Herschel Arms, Slough , UK
Siobhan and Martin met at a weekly music session in Tom Kings pub, the Herschel arms. The session was ran by Martin's dad Bartley Coyne and some very close family friends. This was a great opportunity to share songs and music and a few pints of course. Not long after that Siobhan and Martin started to gig in the area and eventually formed the duo- Rigmarole.
