Initiated in music in his childhood at the Escolanía del Valle de los Caídos. In this abbey, the Benedictine monks taught Víctor Herrero (Madrid, 1981) Gregorian chant and Mozarabic music, as well as classical music and polyphony. It was also there where he began to study classical guitar as his main instrument.

In his adolescence, Victor led for eight years a psychedelic rock band "Cicely" formed in his town of Torrijos (Toledo). After this period with this band he will release his first solo album Connotations for Piano (Factoría Autor, 2006), an album of songs for piano written and performed by him under the nickname Víctor Cicely.

Mikey Kenney is an original. A passionate and well-respected advocate for traditional music a brilliant Liverpool-style fiddler drawing primarily on his native North West English and Irish heritage but grounded in a present-day, urban reality.

He is a musician with wide-open horizons and insatiable curiosity for new possibilities. As evidenced on his latest album, The Reverie Road (Penny Fiddle Records), Kenney's songwriting is both adventurous and earth-bound, with his high lonesome voice exploring sun-drenched Italian vistas, dream worlds and sounds of the city.

With a reputation for both making quality music and producing wondrous flourishes of creativity, Kenney is also a multi-talented and in-demand collaborator, including, formerly, with band Of Burns, and now, with his electric trio World Turned Upside Down, as well as playing with BBC 6 Music favourite, Alabaster DePlume and Italian singer-songwriter, Vinicio Capossela. Mikey is also Musical Director of the Lancashire Youth Folk Ensemble.
