Huw and Tony Williams were brilliant, unfortunately they no longer perform together but there are quite a few CD's out there somewhere.
There is another duo in South Wales Huw Chidgey and Catherine Handley
if they are in your area DON'T miss them.

The Smothers Brothers. Also, (whether you think they are folk or not) Bud and Travis.

Woody and Cisco. The Delmore Brothers. Jim and Jesse.

There is a little known folk-act called the Gardiners who I thought were wonderful. Peter and Isabel.

Homer and Jethro. Doc Watson and Bill Monroe (Chicago Folk Festival) Scruggs and Flat

Laurel and Hardy (all right so they're not really folk but they were great!) Besides, they played great ukulele and sang lovely tunes.

Inman and Ira (not known well)

Some liked Gibson and Camp.

John Roberts and Tony Barrant put on quite a show.

What about Ewan and Peggy?

Leadbelly and Josh White recorded great together.

Did anyone remember Hedge and Donna?

Fiddler and Evelyn Beers (two of my fave American folksingers)

Jean Ritchie and Oscar Brand

Batman and Robin, Abbot and Costello....NOT

Frank

Paul Downes and Phil Beer. Easily the best I have ever seen.
Spredthick (Simon and Hilary).
1812 (Brummies, I think, and very entertaining).
Dave and Toni Arthur, who have been mentioned once, but deserve another mention.

I'm with you Nutty on the Elliotts.
The O'Farims? Yecch!

Now who are that wonderful married couple from the North East of England who formed the 4-piece "Salt of the Earth" and are now a duo again? They do a song about cows coming home that reminds me of Gray's "Elegy in a country Churchyard".

I like Pint and Dale, too.
