Will and Pip have been playing music together since first meeting each other at school in their home town of Ipswich. They both have vast musical experience gained in previous bands, sessions, teaching, writing and playing live – together and solo. This, coupled with a great friendship, resulted in a formidable musical partnership and thus the "Dukes of New York" were born.
Dukes of New York perform perform live as a duo or with guest artists as a full band.
