Silver Train Duo, an acoustic duo from South Manchester, focus upon subtle harmonies and a clever remodelling of some famous songs, to create some unexpected arrangements. They produce a great range of music for every occasion.
Mike and Jan played on the same bill at a number of gigs, as solo performers, before teaming up to form a duo, in 2017 at The Didsbury Guitar Trail.
After success in bars and clubs across South Manchester, they decided to form Silver Train and work upon consolidating a substantial and varied set list of covers, with songs from every decade from 1950s to the present day. A refreshingly melodic duo.

He currently plays regularly with Loose Change Buskers who raise money for Cancer Research UK, all over the Manchester area. He sings with Glor a Chorlton based choir and he is delighted to be teamed up with Mike Healey in Silver Train. Together, they put their years of experience into creating harmonies that are well worth a listen.
