Assortment' are a Wivenhoe acoustic trio with a real assortment of music –
from bluesy-jazzy sounds to traditional and contemporary folk, from
standard ballads to original material. The band consists of vocalist
Denise Bidewell, Lola Barnes on flute and harmony vocals and Alan Van Loen

hear tracks from their CD, ‘TeaTime At Tom’s’ on their Myspace site.
